This week, I’m talking with Claire Appleby of Theatres Trust.
The Theatres Trust 2019 Theatres at Risk register outlines the UK theatre buildings that are under threat or at risk of demolition, closure or lack of maintenance. Theatres Trust believe that these buildings have an important place in the local history of their surrounding areas, but also that they have a vital role to play in the future of their communities and town centres.
I’ll be talking about the register with Claire to find out more about these buildings. In particular, I’ll be chatting to Claire about two of the Greater Manchester buildings on the list that get regular mentions on A Helping of History – the Theatre Royal in central Manchester and the Victoria Theatre in Broughton.
In addition to my interview with Claire, I’ll also be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers in the second hour of the show.
