Scarborough's Futurist Theatre Named In At Risk List

Scarborough's Futurist Theatre Named In At Risk List

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 6:30am 29th September 2016.

An application has been made for a 'certificate of immunity from listing' for the Futurist Theatre in Scarborough.

If passed, it would mean no-one could apply for the building to have listed status for the next five years.

It comes as the iconic venue is named in the top 10 theatre buildings at risk in the country.

The list has been issued by the Theatres Trust and moves the Futurist up from 13th last year to 10th this year.

Claire Appleby from the Theatres Trust said:

"It's risen slightly up the list, that is in very simple terms due to increased risk of demolition. In 2014, the council submitted an application for prior notification of proposed demolition. Also at the time there were several attempts to list the building which unfortunately have since failed, which leaves the building ever more vulnerable. This raises it's risk of demolition and hence raises the Futurist up our list."
