Community Bus Project Hit by Potential Closure of Weymouth Pavilion


7:21am 17th January 2013

Will the show go on at Weymouth Pavilion Theatre?

That's what the leader of a community project is trying to determine.

Margo Kirk is from Bus 2 Go who transport people in the DT11 area to Weymouth.

She's bought 15 tickets to take her passengers to see a show in May - but by then there may not be a theatre to go to.

Margo has told Wessex FM that staff at the Pavilion Box office are still selling tickets for the show, but Councillor Ian Bruce says he can't give assurances it will go ahead.

Weymouth and Portland Borough Council will meet on the 21st February to decide the fate of the theatre and the Ocean Room.

Cllr Mike Goodman, Chairman of the Management Committee at Weymouth & Portland Borough Council, has told Wessex FM: "There have been no decisions made over the future of Weymouth Pavilion. We are looking into a series of options regarding its future which will be discussed at Full Council on 21 February."
