Fantastic news for Hyde and Tameside!!

We now have an option agreement to buy Hyde Theatre Royal. Make no mistake, this is the best ‘true’ theatre in the area, beautiful Edwardian architecture that must be preserved, AND it will bring economic growth and community benefits to Hyde. The venue will be used for theatrical productions and film shows of course, but will also host weddings, conferences, dance shows, dinner dances, live music, commercial business launches, art exhibitions and a many other commercial and community events.

Get behind the campaign. The total purchase price is 250k. We have raised and paid the deposit. We now need to raise 90k by Christmas to meet the second stage of the agreement.
