Warning over 'at risk' North Wales seaside theatres

1st October 2015

Mhora Samuel, Director of The Theatres Trust was quoted in the Wales Daily Post

Mhora Samuel, Director of The Theatres Trust, said: “Financial investment in theatres at risk by the Heritage Lottery Fund and other sources of regeneration funding has shown that theatres such as Wilton’s Music Hall and Alexandra Palace can come back to life.

“Imagine how areas around other theatres on our Theatre Buildings at Risk Register 2015 could be re-animated if those theatres were to be fully reopened.

“Whilst these buildings sit empty and underused, all they represent is an untapped opportunity.”
