Members of Bridlington’s Spotlight Theatre are celebrating after hitting a key landmark in a major fundraising campaign.

The popular theatre launched a drive to raise £12,000 which will help fund a planned expansion and the ‘Buy a Brick’ scheme has now passed £5,000.

The venue’s unusual brick fundraiser is offering theatre fans the chance to buy a brick for £10 and help the extension bid.

The popular theatre has the chance to purchase part of the garage premises next door.

This extra space would allow members to relocate the workshop and create much-needed storage space.

A spokesman said: “Fantastic news. We would like to thank everyone who has made a contribution to the campaign.

“With your help we have raised £5,000 towards the target of £12,000.

“A fair way to go yet, but with your support we will get there.

“Thank you from us all at Spotlight Theatre.”

For every brick purchased, the buyer’s name will be entered into a draw where three lucky winners will be special guests to a show of their choice, enjoy a tour of the theatre and meet the cast of the show, and get a free drink and ice cream.
