Revamp forces Sherman Cymru £800,000 over budget

A Cardiff theatre was asked to explain by the Arts Council of Wales why there was no plan to tackle an £800,000 overspend, it has emerged.

Concerns about Sherman Cymru's ability to pay for a £5.4m re-development were raised after it reopened last year.

Last week it received a £500,000 donation to attract a wider range of audiences and in 2012 it was loaned £500,000 towards the redevelopment.

The theatre said finances had improved and it had dealt with cost issues.
