After reading the Bury Free Press on October 26 about the proposed merger of the Theatre Royal and The Apex, I couldn’t agree more with the comments of the former chairman of the Theatre Royal Judith Shallow.
I would like to add that both venues are quite different and perhaps cater for a different audience.
The Theatre Royal is an historic building, looking after its own finances and supported by local people. On the other hand, The Apes is a modern building which cost twice the original estimate and now the taxpayer is called upon to subsidise the running costs.
