The Castle theatre update

Published on Tuesday, 12 July 2016 in Community and living news

Hazel Clover joined the council’s senior management team on 29 June on an interim contract basis to re-open The Castle theatre. She has been overwhelmed by the offers of help from the local community, potential employees and ex-employees of The Castle. It is taking her some time to wade through all of the emails she has received, and has said “I would like to thank everyone who has contacted me; I am so impressed by the enthusiasm and commitment . demonstrated by so many people. I would just ask that everyone bears with me; I have received many, many offers of help and I will be in touch as soon as I can”. Her focus at present is putting a programme together for the immediate future, for when the doors are open again, and this – together with recruiting a temporary team to operate the venue – is her main priority.
