Streatham MP, Bell Ribeiro-Addy has praised the campaign to renovate Streatham Hill Theatre after it won funding from Sadiq Khan’s Good Growth Fund.
The project will benefit from £15,000 to put towards the costs of an initial viability survey of the Grade II listed, 2,800 capacity former theatre.
The news comes after the Save Streatham Hill Theatre campaign managed to crowdfund its first £10,000 target.
Bell Ribeiro-Addy, Member of Parliament for Streatham said:
“I’m delighted to hear Streatham Hill Theatre has secured Mayoral funding to pursue its renovation project.
“The theatre is an iconic piece of local architecture and I welcome and support efforts to refashion it into a community multi-arts venue.
“The sheer scale of donations from people in Streatham proves how great our community is at pulling together for the causes we care about.”
