Theatres Trust comment on Apollo Theatre ceiling collapse

20th December 2013

The Theatres Trust is very concerned about the collapse of the ceiling and decorative plasterwork at the Apollo Theatre on the 19 December during The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

Mhora Samuel, Director of The Theatres Trust, the National Advisory Public Body for Theatres said, the first and most important next step is to establish the cause of the accident. Thankfully occurrences of theatre ceiling and plasterwork collapse are extremely rare. The public should be reassured that theatre owners carry out regular plasterwork inspections and maintenance regimes to ensure the safety of their buildings. Inspections are carried out and certified by independent experts. We will offer every assistance to the Grade II listed Apollo Theatre’s owners, Nimax, the investigation team and Westminster City Council.
