Dear Barbara,
I am writing to you to express our thanks for the support received from you towards our recent event
in Accrington.
Your generous donation of theatre ticket for our raffle was very gratefully received and our Ladies
Fashion Show evening, raised a fantastic £400 for our cause.  
As a local charity we are very fortunate to have companies like you in our area helping and supporting
us, it really makes a difference.
Thank you once again.
Yours sincerely,

Hello Barbara.. 
I just wanted to write you an email to thank you and all the team who have been involved with the
marketing and build up required right through to show day for Jive Talkin' who came to Burnley
Mechanics this weekend.  A big shout out must go to Angus and Geoff who were of great assistance to
the show cast all day Saturday at your venue.  They did a great job assisting us and provided great
lighting to compliment the show.  Also thanks to Lee who I regularly liaised with so that all our
technical requirements were made available for us at the venue when we arrived on Saturday.  It really
does make our day so much more easier when we are supported by great technical staff and they really
were fab.

The cast of the show all had a wonderful evening at The Mechanics venue

5 Stars.....Can't Believe just how lovely it is inside and the theatre is so cosy wherever you are
you have a great view. Most impressed with the Gin bar such a fantastic selection and even have one
from Burnley and it's lovely. Also so handy because you can also dine there and it is a very enjoyable
looking menu. Had the best time when I was there because I was there for The Osmonds Christmas Special
my Heroes actually at Burnley it was magical they must have loved it to cause they coming back again
in Dec. I have returned since and I will be back again in Dec and I just have a guess why.

Trip Advisor Review: July 2016

My husband and I arranged our drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening reception here. It
was truly faultless from start to finish. Brilliant attention to detail, helpful and polite staff,
amazing food, fantastic prices and everyone who attended sang their praises for every aspect of the
event. We genuinely cannot fault the venue or staff in any way at all. Highly recommend The Mechanics
for a function.

Trip Advisor Review: April 2016

We booked for a concert and decided rather than go into town to eat we would eat in the bistro. What
a good call. The food was simple Fayre but tasty, plentiful and at a sensible price. This certainly
enhanced our evening out and made it a little special. Well done.

Trip Advisor Review: April 2016

I am a regular visitor to the Mechanics. They have good shows/concerts on (lots of 60s revivals) and
last year opened a bistro downstairs. The food is excellent, well cooked in lovely surroundings.
Long overdue in Burnley.

On behalf of the cast and crew of "A Doll's House" I would just like to thank everyone at Burnley
Mechanics for being so helpful and welcoming last week. I understand the show was well received by
the audience, so I do hope we will get the opportunity to return again with our next production.

Thank you to everyone who was on duty that day, and for all your hard work on the marketing and press.

Please also pass on our thanks to the technical team who were extremely helpful and great to work

The latest artwork to be displayed in the Front Room is brought to you by Stephen Ormerod. His work showcases the industrial heritage of Burnley.
If you're interested in displaying your artwork in either the Front Room or Lounge Bar, get in touch! The space is available to local artists to exhibit their work, and there is still availability throughout 2017. It's free to have an exhibition but there is a (very reasonable) commission on any sales. Around 70,000 people came through the building in the past year with our busy Bistro and sell out shows so it's great exposure for the artwork.
If you would like to find out more please email Rachel Hawthorn at
