How you can help your local theatre group and community

CADOS is a registered charity, set up to educate people about the dramatic arts.


We bring the joy of live theatre to members and audiences alike. We also lease Mornington Hall from the council and maintain it for many other groups and local people to enjoy. 

This is only possible thanks to generous support and ongoing fundraising efforts. Could you help keep CADOS and Mornington Hall thriving for the community?

There are lots of ways to support us:

You can also make a donation via JustGiving.

'Heat Our Hall' campaign

Back in late 2020, Mornington Hall's very old heating system finally broke. We turned to our friends, supporters and the local community for urgent help. The support was astonishing: over £12k raised for a new heating system!

Christmas Spectacular

We hosted an evening of Christmas music featuring special guest Brad Ryan in December 2020. The concert was streamed virtually, in line with Covid guidance, and helped raise funds for the ‘Heat our Hall’ campaign.
