Chichester Festival Theatre 

In 1962 local optician Leslie Evershed-Martin founded Britain's first modern thrust stage theatre, which was effectively 'crowdfunded' by local individuals and businesses. A story that has the makings of a great Netflix drama.  Since then, CFT has spent the last six decades making work that entertains, provokes thought and occasionally pushes boundaries. But always with the core belief that world-class theatre should be seen by the world.  They aim to inspire and delight everyone they meet and creativity is at the heart of everything they do. It's a space where experiences are created and shared, and where everyone can find their place.
