The Bear Pit officially opens its doors.

On Sunday 5 October, Kim Hartman, patron of The Bear Pit (aka as Private Helga Geerhart in the TV comedy series ‘Allo ‘Allo!) officially opened The Bear Pit Theatre’s new entrance and pathway at the United Reformed Church in Rother Street, Stratford-upon-Avon.
 
The event was also attended by Guy Winter, whose Great Great Grandfather, together with generations of his family, have supported the building since its construction in 1887.
 
The Town’s Mayor, Ian Fradgley, and Cllr Kate Rolfe were also attendance following grants that both the Warwickshire and Town Councils gave towards the new entrance project. Stratford Town Trust also contributed funds towards the project.
