The Kenneth More Theatre

706 Signatures Goal: 1,000

Redbridge council have proposed a series of cuts to the core funding of The Kenneth More Theatre, in Ilford. Essex. Ultimately, this will mean the closure of the venue within 3 years. The loss of this venue will mean that The London Borough of Redbridge no longer has a theatre, leaving thousands of patrons in a cultural wasteland (this year's panto alone sold 16,000 tickets), dozens of community arts groups with no home, schools with no available performance space, and the theatre staff made redundant.

In signing this petition, you will make your objections to Redbridge Council's plans know!

    What a shame. I played there once in a school performance in the 1970s - great experience. It would be such a loss. Opportunities like that are so important.

    I'm still angry over the closure of the Valentine's Park swimming pool years ago. And now they're proposing to cut the funding for this theatre!

    What a disgrace. Any protests planned?

    Theatres provide a very valuable focus for the creative development of children in the borough. They also provide a venue for people from the borough to come together to enjoy the creativity from within the borough. Cutting the funding of the Kenneth More Theatre saves the council very little so why do it? Is the Labour administration trying to create a cultural wasteland?
