2015 was a special year for us here at Belvoir as it marked 30 years since our first season in 1985. However it was one momentous act that happened in 1984 that saved our home Belvoir St Theatre.
The building was under threat of redevelopment and over a single weekend in March 1984, two ex-Nimrod workers – Chris Westwood and Sue Hill – managed to raise the $50,000 deposit needed to secure a bid to buy the building. Rather than raising money at the big end of town they turned to fellow theatre workers, convincing 850 people to buy a share and saved Belvoir St Theatre.
We come from philanthropic roots and we are determined to keep our ticket prices low so our box office income is supplemented by this vital 17% that allows us to continue to facilitate our community programs, to support emerging artists and to create innovative new works.
Belvoir thanks all of our sponsors, donors and supporters who contribute to what we do in so many wonderful ways.
