IW Council Recommends: Sell Ryde Theatre. Close Shanklin Theatre

January 12, 2010 at 11:28 am Leave a comment

The future of two of the three theatres that the Isle of Wight council looks after for the Island have once again come up for discussion (original VentnorBlog discussions of closure first floated in 2007).

A cabinet meeting on 19 January 2010 will decide the future of both Ryde and Shanklin Theatres. The Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Economy, Tourism, Leisure – George Brown – and Planning and the Cabinet Member for Resources – Peter Bingham recommend the following …Ryde Theatre – the only theatre on the Island of it’s size that can host standing gig – be sold to a mysteriously unnamed “not-for-profit local organisation that aims to use the building to provide music-based education activities and offer it for community use.”

Shanklin Theatre is recommended for closure.

We need informed independents, not idiots reading from a pre-determined script so they can sing in unison. Expose them and the damage they’ve done to our school system and our eco island image (the one thing that could resurrect the Island economy long term).

Get them out and watch how this island progresses/regenerates
