Derby Hippodrome - Derby's favourite writer Anton Rippon says: Knock it down

9th March 2016

Claire Appleby, Architecture Adviser from The Theatres Trust has been quoted in Derby Telegraph.

A debate has started about the future of the once much-loved theatre following a blaze at the site on Sunday.

The Theatres Trust has said it has “real concerns” about the future of the site. The trust is in contact with council officers to find out the extent of the damage to the Grade II listed former theatre.

Claire Appleby, of the trust, said: “We were only in Derby last week, talking to the city council about its plans for a new large scale theatre in Derby following the closure of the Assembly Rooms last year after its fire.

“At the meeting, we also discussed ways forward for the restoration of the Hippodrome. We’ve also been advising Derby Hippodrome Restoration Trust, who want to purchase, rebuild and reopen the theatre, and who have just received a start-up grant to help them value the building.”

London Theatres Small Grants Scheme gets £125k cash injection from Soho Estates

9th March 2016

Tim Eyles, Chair of The Theatres Trust has been quoted in The Stage.

London property company Soho Estates is ploughing £125,000 into the London Theatres Small Grants Scheme, enabling a further 25 venues to carry out repair works.

Soho Estates becomes the second major donor to the Theatres Trust scheme, following Cameron Mackintosh’s foundation, which supported the first year of the initiative with £25,000 of funding.

Announcing the new donor, Theatres Trust chair Tim Eyles said: “Every time we’re able to announce a new donor to the London Theatres Scheme we’re helping to secure the future of live theatre across London. So many small theatres are working on such tight budgets, they struggle to make improvements to their buildings – and we know how these grants can make a huge difference.
