Dear Members and Friends,

It was good to see so many of you at St Michael’s Church for our post lockdown reinvention!

Various bits of information need updating.

1. We are still waiting for a discussion with Teignmouth Community School regarding the use of their Arts Centre. Our long term venue, and favourite. We have been privileged for many years to have a special rental rate as part of the school’s community outreach policy. Unless something similar can be negotiated, their commercial rate would be beyond our budget.
2. We have been researching an acceptable sound system at St Michael’s and hope to have an opportunity to put things to the test, soon. There is still the issue of comfortable seating, and possible temperature issues in the winter months.
3. Many Teignmouth venues have been approached. Some too small. Some have televised football on Friday nights in adjacent rooms. Some haven’t responded to our queries.

We are doing everything we can to try to restart our showings and assure you we will continue to do so. We feel it is now too late to have an October showing, given the challenges still to be resolved, and the time it takes for the publicity machine to work.

Meanwhile, please keep monitoring the TFS website and we hope to welcome everyone as soon as possible.

With best wishes on behalf of the committee.

Steve Bentley
