The Point theatre will be celebrating its milestone 20th anniversary in 2016 and is looking for stories and memories from the public to help with its year-long birthday celebrations.
Having already kick-started the celebrations with a radical redesign of its foyer and bar area, the Leigh Road based-theatre would like to hear from anyone who has fond memories of The Point.
Sorting Office Ceramic artist Sheena Bond, print designer Mariska Parent, textile artist Claire Vine, and visual artist Eve Dawson are working alongside renowned London-based interior designer Naomi Doran of Relic Interiors, to create designs for The Point’s foyer and bar area.
Did you learn to dance in one of its classes or watch a family member perform in a show at The Point?
Did you take part in one of the exciting workshops staged at the contemporary venue?
Perhaps you remember a production that has left you speechless or moved you to tears.
If you have a story to share, The Point Theatre would love to hear it.
The memories collected will be used and woven in a number of inventive ways throughout the theatre’s festivities next year to show how much The Point means to the community and those who use it.

The Point is one of the leading venues in the south for contemporary performance. Set up in 1996 with one of the first National Lottery grants and managed by Eastleigh Borough Council it is housed in Eastleigh’s former Victorian town hall.
Its Creation Space, launched in November 2009, was one of the first of its kind to feature a dedicated “making space” for artists complete with attached accommodation allowing visiting companies to live on-site while creating new work.
In 2015 it was granted National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) status by Arts Council – the first time in its history.
In 2016, the theatre will celebrate its 20th anniversary, with an exciting programme of events “Now we are 20… imagine what’s next” lined-up that will showcase its past, present and exciting future.
