Theatre at Risk Streatham Hill Theatre listed as an ACV
We are delighted to hear that Lambeth Council have listed Theatre at Risk Streatham Hill Theatre as an Asset of Community Value, offering the theatre additional protection from development – it is a great achievement for the Friends of Streatham Hill Theatre, the campaign group fighting to return live performance to the Grade II listed sleeping beauty.
Not only does this decision recognise the theatre’s important cultural and social role in its community, it is a sign of the council's support to return the theatre to an arts and performance use, continuing Streatham’s path of becoming a more attractive and exciting place for residents and visitors.
Any building listed as an Asset of Community Value is offered additional protection as if the building is put up for sale then the community can request six months to raise funds in order to bid for it.
Theatres Trust can support any theatre or campaign group interested in better protecting its theatre by listing it as an Asset of Community Value, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
