Ryde Theatre is no longer on the at-risk register.
THE historic Ryde Theatre, closed by the IW Council two years ago, could be restored and reopened to the public. Since the theatre was put on the market last year, after plans for the Platform One music college to take it on collapsed, the council has received two proposals from interested parties.Economy cabinet member Cllr George Brown said: “Both proposals, as we understand them, keep the building in use as a theatre/live music venue for the foreseeable future. In addition, the adjoining public toilet block in Lind Street will remain open.“Public access to the theatre organ will remain and the council will retain responsibility for the war memorial.“We are evaluating the proposals and are confident they will be welcomed by the public when we are able to give more details shortly.“We continue to evaluate both bids to make sure the one we accept is that which offers best value for the Island, both in cash terms and with appropriate assurances about the future use of the building as a theatre/live music venue.”Ryde Theatre has now been taken off The Theatres Trust risk register.Cllr Brown said: “With the building coming off the at-risk register and with firm and exciting proposals, I am confident the theatre has a bright future.”Reporter: firstname.lastname@example.org
