With much sadness we advise that our dearly loved former Chairperson, Deborah Pontifex has passed away after a long illness. To honour her extraordinary contribution to Patch Theatre Company over many years, we presented her with a plaque naming the Odeon Theatre's foyer "The Deborah Pontifex Foyer" in her honour. Loved by many, always remembered. Vale.
