Despite some pretty awful weather early in the year we have cracked-on with the build and are pretty much on schedule and on budget.

As a little taste of what's to come - Fletcher and Kino got together on Saturday 14th December for the the first of (hopefully) many free, informal screenings of classic films.
On one of the coldest nights of the year, a hardy few sat through the whole film - but over 100 people came to see what we were doing, giving us a chance to explain the plan, There was unanimous support and that wasn't just because of the free mulled-wine.

While it was business as usual for the rest of Rye, Architects, Engineers, acoustics experts and many other specialist trades have been working hard in the pre-construction phase. In order to make sure that there are no surprises and that when the building starts, we can complete on time and in budget, we've had to organise…and pay for…
Who are we?
Fletcher in Rye CIC
A group of local residents with experience in Business, Banking and Theatre.
We came together originally to try to establish a theatre in The Monastery and promote the name of John Fletcher - the Jacobean playwright, and colleague of Shakespeare - who was born in Rye. The group’s focus switched to Lion Street when it was threatened with redevelopment.
We're building links with local businesses (including Jonathan Dunn Architects and Kino Digital) - helping us preserve Rye’s heritage by establishing creative and sustainable uses for its historic and potentially redundant buildings.
