Bournemouth Pier theatre to close

Bournemouth Council has approved  a change of use for the Pier Theatre.

This means that the theatre will close.

A condition is that the operator must keep a photographic record of the theatre and that any significant fixtures  should be rescued for re-use.

This is important as the theatre was designed by Elisabeth Scott who was brought up on the West Cliff. He first job as a young architect was to design the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre at Stratford-upon-Avon.

Bournemouth is losing something very special.
