It was very nice to meet new faces and re-acquaint ourselves with the familiar during the site visit.
Thankyou for a most enjoyable day.
Dave and I are proposing to use the side wall and front entrance to the old Empire Theatre on Cow Lane and St.James street respectively. We have been researching the history and collating stories both from physical sources and through a series of informal interviews with local historians.
The building has a grade II listed interior and is protected as such, unfortunately this has not prevented it from falling into disrepair.
The status of the building is listed by the theatre trust as "Extant"
We have chosen to name our project after this definition.
Without giving too much away our project aims to reveal and illuminate this hidden gem.
