Save the Cresset Theatre group formed


Lifestyle | Article

Following the devastating news that The Cresset Theatre will be closing on Saturday 26 June 2010, a group has been formed to try and prevent this from happening for the good of the City and Greater Peterborough.

Save The Cresset Theatre consists of 6 individuals who have come together with the same aim - to keep quality and professional live entertainment in the city of Peterborough, and ensure that Peterborough remains on the cultural map of the UK.

Supporting the local people of Bretton and Peterborough are also high on the group’s agenda as over The Cresset Theatre’s 30 year existence the venue has been a great resource for many community, charity and school groups.

Since the announcement of the closure more than 6,000 individuals have either travelled from as far afield as Stevenage, Sheffield, Loughborough, Diss and Lincoln to sign the petition, or joined the Facebook group started by the group’s chairman Stephen Saunders. Speaking after the first meeting Stephen commented “The Cresset Theatre is an extremely valuable asset to the people of Peterborough and surrounding areas. Over the years the venue has attracted a number of extremely high profile live acts – who without The Cresset Theatre – would never have come to the city. Therefore, we have made the decision to form this group to try and prevent the closure from happening. We aim to achieve this by trying to speak to the right people and hopefully get the answers to many unanswered questions.”

For more information, or to offer your help and support for the group please contact Stephen Saunders via the Facebook page.
