Theatres at Risk Register 2019 revealed with three new additions
Now in its 12th year, the Theatres at Risk Register highlights and supports theatres under threat of closure, redevelopment or demolition across the UK, calling the public’s attention to these buildings, their challenges, opportunities and those who fight for them.
This year, 31 theatres appear on this vitally important register with three new additions - Theatr Ardudwy, Tottenham Palace Theatre and The Intimate Theatre in Palmers Green.
We are calling for more collaborative creative partnerships between local authorities, theatre owners and operators and community groups to protect the theatres on the list. There should also be more sustainable funding to prevent further theatres becoming ‘at risk’ in the future.
Seven theatres have been removed from this year's register. These are Alexandra Palace Theatre, The Cryer, Hulme Playhouse, Llandudno Grand, The Secombe Theatre, Workington Opera House and The Coronet Theatre.
