Theatre seeks cash for 'makeover'Thursday 23rd June 2011
The team behind Gorleston’s historic Pavilion Theatre is targeting the Heritage Lottery Fund to support an ambitious £1m makeover plan.
It needs to raise £100,000 itself to support any grant applications and those efforts have been boosted by the news that its restoration fund is being given charitable status.
Theatre director Stuart Malkovich said the new status meant they could explore other funding options. In the meantime, they were looking to raise £100,000 to support any grant applications. After more than a century, the building needed love and care. Water dripped through the roof when it rained and the windows and brickwork needed improvements.
The Edwardian theatre, which has hosted such stars as Morecambe and Wise in its 110-year history, is working with the borough council to prepare a grant application to the Heritage Lottery Fund.
