Consultations - Oakengates Theatre Review Survey

Who can get involved? Customers and users and non users of The Place @ Oakengates. We will also send the survey to members of the Community Panel who have signed up to receive surveys from the Council.
Start date 5 November 2012
Closing date 4 January 2013
Service delivery area Arts and Culture
Reason for consultation The Place @ Oakengates is a theatre owned and run by Telford & Wrekin Council. The Council have to spend a lot of money to keep the theatre open. We need to find ways to increase the theatre income and make savings.
We would like to hear from customers and users of The Place @ Oakengates as well as people who don’t visit the theatre. Telling us what you think about the future of the theatre will help make decisions regarding what the theatre offers and the way in which the building is operated.
Overview We will carry out a survey which can be accessed in a hard copy or online.
How to get involved? Survey Questionnaires will be available on line, through The Place and Council websites. Hard copies will be circulated through the leisure, library and first point offices. Theatre staff will also target users and non users at Community events and during Theatre shows and events.
The next steps After the closing date the information gathered will be analysed and used to help inform the future service provision/business planning of Oakengates Theatre.
