Reprieve for historic Streatham Hill Theatre

Some great news from Friends of Streatham Hill Theatre - the Art Deco bingo hall on Streatham Hill that in its hay day helped give Streatham its reputation as the West End of South London. 
Lambeth Council has approved its nomination of the theatre as an Asset of Community Value. This means that the community has an opportunity to buy the premises should the owner wish to sell to anyone at all. The Friends group has a vision to return the building to its former glory as an arts centre and creative hub.
