Help in the Community

Community Matters…

LVP values its position in the community and we aim to work with businesses, groups, schools and individuals to achieve success for all.

Apart from the shows we stage we also join in community events. We have sung at local nursing and residential homes, village events and fetes…


…and during the winter we go carol singing, have a stall at the Switching on of the Christmas Lights in Bicester and also decorate a Christmas tree for St Edburg’s Christmas Tree festival.

We would like to say a big thank you to all of our sponsors, advertisers, those who have given raffle prizes and especially any business or individual that has been our Box Office for any of our shows.


Donations

LVP believes that community support is very important and it is definitely a two way process. We are extremely grateful to all who have supported us over the years. This helps us to ensure that any profits we make are donated to many charities and good causes.

Thank you to everyone who came and supported our 2022 Summer Variety Show "A Musical Jubilee". We are very proud that we raised an amazing £1400 for the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.

Despite the challenges of Covid-19, our 2022 pantomime "Dick Whittington" raised £2570 for our 8 chosen charities! Donations were split according to members' votes, as follows:
