Roleystone Theatre Information Update

Roleystone Theatre Information Update

Closes: 
Monday, 25 February 2019 - 5pm

The Roleystone Theatre was closed in February 2018 due to public safety concerns.

In December 2018 Council considered a report on the future of the Roleystone Theatre and decided the following:

  1. Commit to the reopening of the Roleystone Theatre for occupation and use.
  2. Proceed with finalising a design that reflects the current scale, noting:
    a. The main hall is to be repaired; and
    b. Flytower to be restored or replaced; and
    c. Other areas of the building to be rebuilt to similar sizes at current standards.
  3. Consider and seek funding sources in preparation for consideration as part of the 2019/20 budget.
  4. Consider user arrangements that support the Roleystone Theatre Group as a primary tenant but considers opportunities for others.
  5. Commission a heritage assessment and impact statement.
  6. Commit to the use of Roleystone Hall by the Roleystone Theatre Group until such time that the Roleystone Theatre is reopened.
