2nd December 2015

Mhora Samuel, Director of The Theatres Trust has been quoted in The Stage.

Brighton Hippodrome has moved a step closer to being revived as a performance venue, following a viability study that found it should become a “theatre of varieties”.

Mhora Samuel, Director of The Theatres Trust, said: “We have been very grateful for the six-month window provided by AMG. It has allowed us to work closely together as a group of stakeholders and produce a viability report which gives us confidence that a revived Brighton Hippodrome has a future as a live performance venue.”

She added: “The challenges ahead are considerable however, and we will continue to campaign for its future and support the CIC with its fundraising.”
