Could Scarborough's Futurist Theatre Become Listed?

12th January 2017

Claire Appleby and Theatres Trust have been mentioned in Yorkshire Coast Radio.

Claire Appleby, Architecture Adviser at Theatres Trust was interviewed after the council’s vote passed the decision to demolish the Futurist Theatre. However with an application for statutory listing still outstanding she said:

“If the Certificate of Immunity is granted it means that the building cannot be listed for the next five years. However, if the certificate is refused, it means that the building automatically becomes listed. In the past, what Historic England had decided was that there wasn’t enough of the original building.”

9th January 2017

Theatres Trust today announces the eight theatres selected to receive £15,000 each from the Spend a Penny campaign, financed by the philanthropic Chairman of Albourne Partners, Simon Ruddick.

Submissions for these grants were received at the end of October, and after thorough scrutiny the following theatres have been selected:

Shelley Theatre, Bournemouth
Darlington Hippodrome
Liverpool’s Royal Court
Little Angel Theatre, Islington, London
Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis
Tyne Theatre and Opera House, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough
