Mhora Samuel comments in The Stage on the big issues that face the industry in 2015

5th January 2015

Mhora Samuel, Director of The Theatres Trust, has commented on the big issues that face the industry in 2015 for The Stage, the weekly for the entertainment industry,

“There is a growing gap between theatres that are investment rich and those that are funding poor. Ambitious regeneration-led new theatre developments will emerge alongside others being sold off by local authorities or affected by cuts. Our answer? Empower communities and build relationships with investors and developers to create new delivery models and more resilient theatres”.

Comment appeared in The Stage, print copy, 1 January 2015, page 22.
