Theatres Trust urges Croydon Council to rethink Fairfield Halls closure

14th April 2016

Ross Anthony, Planning Adviser from the Theatres Trust has been quoted in The Stage.

Theatres Trust urges Croydon Council to rethink Fairfield Halls closure

In a letter to the council, Ross Anthony, planning adviser at The Theatres Trust, said “It is unfortunate the council has been unable to agree to a staged refurbishment, keeping part of the Halls open during the wider construction period to maintain some level of cultural offer for local residents.”

“The loss of existing expertise and audiences puts incredible pressure on the new operators to rebuild that audience base upon reopening, further affecting the venues’ long-term viability. We encourage the council to reconsider this decision.”

Seminar: Theatres Trust 40 at PLASA Focus Leeds

13th April 2016

PLASA Focus Leeds
Seminar | 11 May 2016 | 14.15
A Theatres Trust 40 event

We are 40 years old on the 22 July. Join us at a seminar at PLASA Focus Leeds to discuss what we need to be doing today to protect theatres for live theatre tomorrow. What new theatres will we need? How can we protect our existing theatres? And what solutions will help theatres meet the costs of maintenance, refurbishment and modernisation? How can we make best use of the planning system? How is live theatre changing and how will our buildings need to change to meet the needs of theatre makers?

We invite you to debate these questions and be part of our 40th anniversary national conversation.
