Theatres Trust announce their Theatres At Risk list this week

Streatham Hill Theatre (SHT) has been on the 'at risk' list since 2018 and we await this year's update. Though we have moved forward with our campaign and with the findings of our viability study, we can see that the building is still at risk. Look out for the Theatres Trust publicity - we will be passing on the announcement through our social media.

We also plan to launch the "Assessment of Heritage Significance" for SHT - showing how important the building is - and announce a fabulous new patron at the same time.

Viability Study and Economic Impact Assessment

We have been discussing the interim findings from the study with members, trustees, stakeholders and Lambeth our local authority... and we are heading towards a consensus on the best way forward. Come along to the campaign meeting for an update.

TfL Proposals for A23 Streatham Hill

Last year TfL consulted on proposals for changes to the A23 Streatham Hill to improve the environment around the road and encourage more cycling. Unfortunately they hadn't factored in our proposals to regenerate Streatham Hill Theatre, as they were not aware of our (GLA supported) plans. We put forward some comments about access needed for that regeneration and are pleased to note that, when they just recently published the results of the consultation, they have committed to talk with us further to address those concerns.

Can you help some more please?

The Spacehive Crowdfunder we ran earlier in the year was very successful, with pledges from hundreds of supporters and grants from Lambeth, Mayor of London and Theatres Trust more than reaching the total we needed to carry out the viability study and economic impact assessment. We thank everyone who contributed!

Unfortunately, when Spacehive processed the pledges, some could not be collected. We suspect much of this was due to the untimely arrival of COVID and its impact on pledgers' employment and income making it no longer possible for them to contribute.

While we have received more donations (thank you!) since the Crowdfunder, we still have a small shortfall of around £1000.

As we move forward with great proposals for the future of Streatham Hill Theatre emerging from the study we are asking if you can please donate a little more here to enable the campaign to continue. 
Thanks very much!
