Thurrock Courts Players

You may be aware that Thurrock Council have proposed closing the Thameside Complex permanently. This would leave us homeless after performing three shows a year since the theatres opening in the early 1970's . There are many campaigns to reverse this decision and we encourage our supporters to back these campaigns. The theatre has been closed  since March 24th 2020, due to Covid, but has not reopened until now. 

The latest news (11 Sept) is that the Theatre will now open until the completion of this years Pantomime . This means it is likely that our production of Vicar of Dibley will not be performed at the Thameside . That situation may change so please return to these pages for regular updates  If you have already purchased tickets please hang onto them  You will get to see the show or you will be refunded 





We are simply asking for donations at the end of each performance to help us with running costs . The minimum cost to us on a Thameside show is at least £5000. A ticket normally costs £15 . Please donate what you can.
