The First Night Riders is a charity motorcycle ride. The 2nd motorbike trip around the UK is the 18th – 25th June 2011 to raise money for The Theatrical Guild.
This year riders will undertake a round Britain tour of more new, interesting and historically significant theatres, starting and finishing in London.
The tour will make a stop at Swindon’s Mechanics’ Institution on the 24th June, approximately 1:00pm. Please feel free to join the Trust in welcoming the riders to Swindon.
More information on the campaign can be found at: http://www.firstnightride.com and on Facebook.
The Theatrical Guild (TTG) exists for the purposes of helping all those in need, who’ve been or are currently employed, in professional theatre. It is the only charity in the UK available to Front of House and Backstage staff. TTG makes no distinction between the nature of beneficiaries’ employment – backstage and on-stage, front of house, technical, catering, sales and administration or management. If they’ve worked in the theatre and they’re facing hardship or need support then The Theatrical Guild can help.
