The Ramshorn Theatre is facing closure. The building where Fraser and I had our rehearsed reading of 'Odds and Sods', where we've performed as You Owe Me Glue, where we've both done stand-up and where I've performed in several plays is set for the bin under the new principal of Strathclyde University's new agenda.
The Director of Estates Management has announced that the building, built in 1824, will be 'Disposed of'.
Susan and Sylvia of Strathclyde Theatre Group are actively fighting the decision. There is an EGM for members of STG this coming Wednesday night at 6.30. I'm sure from this will come a plan of action that will involve as many folk as want to help out.
In the meantime there is a Facebook group you can join.
You can find out more about the history of the building here.
