WELCOME TO FESPA

The Friends of East Suffolk Performing Arts (FESPA) was registered as a Charity in 2007. It has two aims - a general one and a specific one...

Our general objective is to promote and facilitate a healthy and vigorous performing arts scene within East Suffolk for the benefit of our community.

Our more specific goal is to encourage and support education in the performing arts for people in this area.

FESPA has evolved out of a thriving group of some 800 theatre enthusiasts - or Friends - centred on the Southwold and Aldeburgh Summer Theatres. The latter is a co-operative, not-for-profit repertory initiative which, for nearly 30 years was run by Jill Freud.

The decision to apply for charitable status reflected a growing awareness that a group as enthusiastic and effective as the Friends has proved itself to be, should begin to set its sights on a broader platform in the interests of the cultural well-being of the communities of East Suffolk.
