The Talisman Theatre in Kenilworth recognised for its green performance

THE TALISMAN Theatre in Kenilworth has been recognised for its green performance.

The theatre has been recognised as a Plastic-Free Ally by Plastic Free Kenilworth, a local environmental organisation dedicated to reducing single-use plastics in the community.

This accolade commends the theatre’s commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility.

The Talisman Theatre, known locally for its mainstage performances as well as Fringe theatre and Cinema showings, has taken steps to eliminate single-use plastics from its operations. One recent change is the replacement of disposable plastic beakers in the auditorium with durable, reusable alternatives. This initiative not only reduces plastic waste but also promotes eco-conscious practices among theatre patrons.

Des McCann, bar manager for the Talisman Theatre, said: “We are thrilled to be acknowledged for our efforts in promoting sustainability. Since recently introducing the re-usable plasticware behind the bar we’ve already had so many positive comments from our patrons about the quality of them compared to single use plastic, and of course they’re so much better for the environment too. We believe that every small change contributes to a greener future for our town and beyond.”

Des added: “Not only has the new reusable plasticware proven very popular, we’re also delighted that actually these won’t cost the theatre as much money in the long run either. Each ‘glass’ can be re-used up to 1,000 times, which means that the lifespan on one item would typically last us over seven years.”
