Former EMD cinema placed on theatre 'at risk' register

22nd September 2015

The Theatres Trust has been mentioned in Waltham Forest Guardian

The former Granada theatre and EMD cinema has been placed on the 2015 ‘Buildings at Risk’ register by the Theatre Trust.

A spokesman for the Trust said they are “supporting the team at Soho Theatre, and Waltham Forest Cinema Trust in their discussions with Antic”.

A Theatre Trust spokesman said: “Without any use or maintenance, it is believed that the auditorium and stage areas are now in a poor condition.

“If the auditorium is not brought back into use, there is a strong risk that the auditorium and stage areas will deteriorate further and the venue will be lost permanently to live performance use.

“In order to avoid this, the London Borough of Waltham Forest has brought Antic London and Soho Theatre together to discuss shared use of the building.”

The Theatres Trust has recently released Theatres At Risk 2015 report

21st September 2015

The Theatres Trust has been mentioned in a post in Ipswich Town & Waterfront’s Facebook Page.

The Theatres Trust has recently released in Theatres At Risk 2015 report. Very sad to see 31 British theatres at risk, although it is good to see that the Spa Pavillion in Felixstowe has now been removed from this year’s list.

It goes to show that if we don’t want to see our local theatres close, we must continue to support them. New Wolsey Theatre, Regent Theatre, Ipswich and Red Rose Chain are three of Ipswich’s great theatres – visit their websites to discover what’s on.
