The Tower Theatre has been officially open now for five years. In that time it has proved to be a Community Theatre for the whole community to visit or use for their own functions or meetings. FHODS are very proud of the 300 seat auditorium and the large function area available. FHODS is a charity and needs all the support it can muster. Advertising space is available to reach a wide and interested audience.
You can Sponsor a Seat at a cost of £100 which will stamp your name into the fabric of the theatre. Contact us for details. In addition we are currently looking for local companies to sponsor Fhods productions and other events. History of St.
Marks Church FROM CHURCH T. It was built of brick, with gothic doors and windows in stone, and powerful over-arching concrete arches across the vault of the nave - altogether a fine piece of architecture, but an astonishing feat in 1941!

Company description
Where did they find the bricks two years into the War, when even the re-building of bombed-out houses was already being restricted to 'Utility Build St.ndards' One would have thought too that the skilled builders would have gone off to fight; or was foreign prisoner labour used In fact the building shows no sign of economy, and its size and provocative position on a hilltop, visible from NAZI occupied France, and a marker for every passing bomber raid, might well have been conceived as a statement of defiance one-finger gesture! If so, it had the desired effect: within days, Lord Haw's mocking tones were heard announcing the newly completed Church at Shorncliffe was to be bombed, and allegedly an attempt was made two nights later, but it was unsuccessful. Curiously, military churches are not consecrated, but dedicated and notice was taken of the threat, for when Archbishop Fisher arrived to perform the Service of Dedication to St.Mark, he was surely uniquely given an escort of Spitfires as overhead protection. Afterwards the stained glass was relocated, the organ sold, the books and banners removed, and the Sale advertised. It was FHODS' opportunity.
