The auditorium of Spilsby Theatre has been closed down on safety grounds following a building survey.
Trustees of the Dandelion Trust (the organisation running the theatre) have had to take this decision in the interest of public safety following the results of a building survey. At this stage it is not known how long the auditorium will be closed but those involved with the theatre are doing everything to reopen as soon as possible.
The theatre bar is not affected and will still be in use.
Bruce Knight said: “Trustees of the Dandelion Trust, the organisation running the theatre, have had to take this decision in the interest of public safety following the results of a building survey.
“At this stage we do not know how long the auditorium will be closed. We will be doing everything we can to reopen as soon as possible. I am exploring possibilities of how events can take place in the bar or other parts of the building and talking to artists to to ensure we can avoid cancelations. The show must go on.”
