Theatres Trust say 'Our theatres, concert halls, art galleries and museums matter. They help promote economic growth, enhance the built environment and develop sustainable communities.
It is our policy to be open, honest and fair in our communications. We apologise that we don’t always acknowledge everyone who donates and supports our efforts to save, restore and re-open Hyde Theatre Royal. The campaign is so large things do slip by but rest assured, we appreciate every donation and all offers of support we receive.
The latest position regarding the campaign.
Theatre Royal Onward had an ‘option to buy’ agreement with the owner, with the purchase price set at £250,000. The agreement was time limited by the owner.
We now have to report that did not meet the terms of the agreement in that we have not reached the target price in the time allowed. It is fair to say the timescales were always too ambitious unless we attracted the support of a major donor but we felt we had to try.
Although we did not succeed this time we are still fighting to save the theatre and there is tremendous support for this. We will keep raising money to continue the fight, protect the theatre and pursue the cause.
Support the Campaign
Make no mistake, this is the best ‘true’ theatre in the area, beautiful Edwardian architecture that must be preserved, AND it would bring economic growth and community benefits to Hyde. The venue would be used for theatrical productions and film shows of course, but would also host weddings, conferences, dance shows, dinner dances, live music, commercial business launches, art exhibitions and a many other commercial and community events.______________________
