Corn Exchange Theatre Plus

Help us to secure the future of our unique theatre and cinema in Wallingford.

We now have a building that is dry again and will be warm, comfortable and with the potential to serve Wallingford into the 21st Century.

We now need to move onwards and upwards!

With voluntary staffing and management the organisation returns a surplus which goes into our reserves ready for improvement projects. For example, we were able to contribute over £200,000 towards the roof project from ticket sales in the past few years.

But to ensure that every customer wants to return to the venue, we must keep up with the latest technology so that the Corn Exchange provides a great experience.



We currently need £150,000 to complete a further list of improvements.

To give you an idea of how much it costs:

Refurbishment of the stage will cost about £20,000

Lighting rigs with the latest environmentally friendly and economic LED systems will cost around £30,000

Electric winches to raise and lower the cinema screen and lighting bars, making us compliant with modern health and safety legislation will cost about £50,000

Dolby ATMOS system, giving us the quality of sound we need to compete against other cinemas. This currently costs around £50,000
