Theatres Trust welcomes new law to protect pub theatres

The Theatres Trust has been mentioned in The Stage.

The Theatres Trust and Planning Adviser, Ross Anthony, have been quoted saying: “The trust has for some time been campaigning against permitted development rights like this one, so it is a good thing.

“Pub theatres now have the certainty that the owner of the pub at least needs to talk to them. It doesn’t necessarily save them but it does put an extra step in there where we can all make our comments.”
