Save North Devon Theatres

North Devon Council, please re-open North Devon Theatres as soon as possible!

Why is this important?

The Queens theatre in Barnstaple and The Landmark theatre in Ilfracombe are set to be closed down.

They are a vital community hub that bring vibrancy and cultural life to the heart of North Devon, aswell as lots of much-needed employment.

There are over 100 staff and volunteers engaged in providing a variety of live entertainment and educational activities to the area.

We cannot afford to let these fantastic people and buildings go.

Reasons for signing

  • I feel very strongly that venues for education and entertainment should be kept for the public. It would be a sad place without these facilities
  • I like to go to the theatre and want that to continue
  • These are vital facilities for art, culture and entertainment for North Devon
