I appeared on the stage of this lovely theatre many times in the 60’s and 70’s. Thank goodness it has been preserved.

There is an interesting planning consent here. The church was granted a “su generis” consent which means that it applies only to the current users. If the building is ever sold again it has to be sold as a theatre / cinema, and the church are not allowed to make any changes to the building which could prevent or make difficult a return to entertainment use.
