The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford launched its Play Your Part campaign with the help of some star guests on September 27.

Pictured from left at the event, which explained how Play Your Part aims to transform the venue into a cultural community hub with theatre at its core, are chair Stephen Bampfylde, director and chief executive Joanna Read, and actors Timothy West, Susan Jameson and James Bolam.

Around 80 close supporters of the theatre attended the celebration to learn about the next steps for the campaign, watch a video of future plans and hear from the theatre team and campaign donors.
