Warehouse Theatre, Croydon launches appeal

Friday, 11 May, 2012

The Warehouse Theatre in Croydon, which celebrates its 35th birthday this year, is launching an appeal to safeguard its future.

Croydon council last month withdrew £30,000 of funding, while the venue was also hit by the loss of money from the Arts Council four years ago.

Officials say the loss of public funding and a downturn in box office revenue has put it in jeopardy. Insolvency firm Frost Business Recovery has now been called in to act as interim administrator.

Cate Blanchett made her London stage debut at the venue in Sweet Phoebe in 1995.
