Annual General Meeting – April 2016

The annual general meeting is just over a month away and we would like to remind our members how important it is for this event to take place.

The Gantry Youth Theatre is a registered charity – without a committee the Gantry Youth Theatre cannot run.

We will be looking for new committee members and a new chairperson! The main responsibility for a committee member is to attend monthly meetings (10 a year) and assist with some of the main productions. The date for the meeting is below and we would be grateful for your attendance.

The AGM will take place at Bitterne Park School at 6.30pm on Friday 29 April 2016.
