Memories of Theatres at Risk

Share your stories and photos of theatres on the Theatres at Risk Register.

To support our on-going Theatres at Risk campaign, we’d like to gather memories about the theatres that are on our current list from people in the local communities where these are located.

We are looking for stories about the acts people (or their parents / grandparents) saw in the theatre or tales of treading the boards there. Or any happy memories about the theatre’s place in the community during its glory days. We’d also love to see any photos of the current Theatres at Risk buildings.

We already know why each building is significant and believe they can have futures as live performance spaces, but we’d like to add some real local colour to each case.

The stories and photos we receive will be used when we publish the Theatres at Risk Register 2021 in late January and throughout the year to raise awareness of these remarkable buildings and why they are worth saving.
