Hard-working volunteers have raised £50,000 to support a theatre where Oscar-winning film star Gary Oldman trod the boards in the early years of his career.

Chesterfield Theatre Friends’ money-spinning programme for the town’s Pomegranate has funded the installation of a toilet for the disabled, a big projection screen for films, booster seats for children and winches for lighting bars.
