Letter: Backwards step to turn back on Burgess Hill's Martlets Hall replacement

3rd October 2015

The Theatres Trust has been mentioned in Mid Sussex Times.

The decision of the Mid Sussex District Council to turn its back on a like-for-like (or better) replacement of The Martlets Hall is a huge step backwards in terms of taking Burgess Hill forward.

[A letter from the Theatres Trust dated September 8, 2015] goes on to remind MSDC that the role of the Martlets Hall was recognised in the elaboration of the Burgess Hill Neighbourhood Plan. While the Plan accepted that the Martlets Hall might well face demolition, it supported the creation of a new arts/theatre facility, if necessary on a different site. It advocated that a replacement facility should be built before the Martlets Hall is demolished, thus ensuring continuity.

The Theatres Trust has been mentioned in Western Morning News.

Simon Parker meets the new musical director at Plymouth’s Palace Theatre and hears about his hopes for the historic venue’s rebirth.

[Marcus Alleyne, Musical Director at the Palace Theatre in Plymouth said:] “Between January and June 2016 very little will be happening at the Palace because that is when the majority of the internal work will be going on – and there is a huge amount to do.

“But what’s good is there is a great deal left from its days as a Victorian music hall and we are in consultation with English Heritage, The Theatres Trust and The Victorian Association to make sure the renovations are completed to the best standard.

“The potential opportunities are endless, not only for me but for what it will open up for the people of Plymouth and the wider South West.”
