Dudley Hippodrome on register of most endangered theatres

24th September 2015

Mhora Samuel, Director of The Theatres Trust, has been quoted in Black Country Bugle.

Last Thursday, September 17, The Theatres Trust published its Theatre Buildings at Risk Register for 2015. Sadly, for those fighting to save it from demolition, the Dudley Hippodrome remains among the 31 theatres at risk in the UK today.

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 the Winter Gardens in Morecambe, Dudley Hippodrome, Swansea Palace, Brighton Hippodrome and 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.”
