Report: Delivering with less – Leisure Services

3rd December 2015

Wales Audit Office has recently released the report “Delivering with less – Leisure Services”, after examining council leisure services under their series of ‘delivering with less’ thematic reviews.

They found that although public sector ownership and management of leisure provision is starting to change with the transfer of some services and assets to other models of operation, such as private sector trusts, strategic decisions on whether to transfer or continue with in-house provision of leisure services have not always been based on robust information or a consideration of all of the options open to councils.

2nd December 2015

Mhora Samuel, Director of The Theatres Trust has been quoted in The Stage.

Brighton Hippodrome has moved a step closer to being revived as a performance venue, following a viability study that found it should become a “theatre of varieties”.

Mhora Samuel, Director of The Theatres Trust, said: “We have been very grateful for the six-month window provided by AMG. It has allowed us to work closely together as a group of stakeholders and produce a viability report which gives us confidence that a revived Brighton Hippodrome has a future as a live performance venue.”

She added: “The challenges ahead are considerable however, and we will continue to campaign for its future and support the CIC with its fundraising.”
