Byre Theatre in St Andrews to go into liquidation
The Byre Theatre in St Andrews is likely to go into liquidation next week, BBC Scotland has learned.
The theatre was originally a cow shed, but has played host to drama productions since the 1930s.
It was formally reopened by Sir Sean Connery after undergoing a £5.5m facelift in 2001.
But recent funding cuts left the theatre unable to produce its own shows.
However, it has been in demand as a touring venue, and was due to host several concerts for the forthcoming Fife Jazz Festival.
These will now be held in St Andrews town hall instead, while a booking for a charity event in the theatre next week will also be honoured.
