You have no money but you’re building a cinema, a car park and restoring the Civic Theatre.

The cinema is a private development, being built on land which was jointly owned by the Homes and Communities Agency and the Council and was sold by them to get the cinema in the town centre. It is not funded by the Council. Money from the sale of the land will be used to fund riverside works to enhance the wider town centre area.

Funding for the Civic Theatre and the Hullaballoon children’s theatre is coming from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England sponsorship and a ticket levy.
