Statement from Council Leader on the Kenneth More Theatre
Published: 20 March 2019
Council Leader Cllr Jas Athwal said: “Successive administrations in Redbridge have tried to support the Kenneth More Theatre to stand on its own two feet and three years ago we agreed to do the same.
“Despite our best efforts and a considerable amount of taxpayers’ money in grants to cover the costs of performances and maintenance they have found it difficult to become a viable business.
“This is regrettable and we want to thank the KMT for all it has contributed over many years to the local community.
“Our vision for the coming years is to bring forward a leisure and cultural hub on this site and in the meantime, we will work to ensure the community are able to access the theatre as a performance venue.”
