Company Ambassador Kate Winslet visited Cardboard Citizens’ new premises at 77A Greenfield Road, Whitechapel prior to our move this weekend. She delighted Members of Cardboard Citizens' ACT NOW programme by attending our Monday night drama workshop at the Brady Arts Centre. We're honoured to have the academy award-winning actress as our Ambassador since 2008. Kate hosted the Company’s biennial fundraising dinner in 2011 helping raise £130,000 which has enabled us to secure our new space in Whitechapel and is excited to continue her involvement with Cardboard Citizens. We're pleased to confirm that she will be hosting our next gala fundraising dinner in Spring 2013. After nine years based in an attic off Brick Lane, Cardboard Citizens will have a home that hosts all of the Company’s work under one roof. The new offices behind the East London Mosque include a large rehearsal space, offices and confidential room for Information, Advice & Guidance with Members of the company.
