Theatres Trust at 40 – a new strategy to protect theatres

Mhora Samuel, Director of the Theatres Trust said “Our influence means it’s now very rare to see theatres demolished without being replaced. We’re proud that the quality of theatre design is the best it’s ever been. We’ve achieved great things for theatres by speaking loudly in the planning system.

In our anniversary year I invite everyone to join us at a Theatres Trust 40 event, and online, to debate how we continue to protect and promote our nation’s theatres now and in the future.”
