Ian Gillan helps fund a local theater’s website


Gabby Rabbitts, director of the Marine Theatre, said: “Our old website had run its course and we were

finding it difficult to communicate with our audience and the community. The new website is responsive,

user friendly, and people can become members. We are very grateful to Ian Gillan for funding this

important project and we hope that everyone enjoys using the new site.”

Ian said: “I am delighted to support the Marine Theatre in its anniversary year; it does a fantastic job

at bringing in names in to the town, while celebrating local performers. This new website is helping to

communicate their important work to the community.”
