Architectural Heritage Fund supports Burnley Empire Viability Study

Campaigners fighting to rescue and restore a derelict theatre in Burnley have received good news this week. The Architectural Heritage Fund have agreed a Project Viability Fund grant of £4000 towards the second phase of the Burnley Empire Viability Study which will allow the group to undertake a buildings evaluation and assess whether the theatre has a commercially viable future.

The funding was applied for by Theatres Trust, on behalf of the Burnley Empire Stakeholders Group, and will be matched by funding raised by Burnley Empire Theatres Trust (BETT). Other members of the Stakeholders Group include Burnley Council, Burnley College, the University of Central Lancashire and Burnley and District Civic Trust. The first phase of the Viability Study was funded by Theatres Trust and Burnley Council, and concluded in December 2016. The overall aim of the Viability Study is to identify a sustainable future for the Grade II Burnley Empire, and provide support for further funding bids which are likely to be needed to restore the theatre.
