Theatre Royal in Dumfries seeks urgent repairs funding

A survey of Scotland's oldest working theatre has found urgent repairs and maintenance must be carried out to safeguard its future.

Councillors are being asked to back a set of improvements at the Theatre Royal in Dumfries costing £225,000.

Earlier this month the Nithsdale area committee approved £30,000 to prevent deterioration of the site.

Now it is being asked to release extra funds to keep it wind and watertight and extend its life by about 10 years.

If backed, a recommendation would then be made for the full council to release the cash as part of a wider programme to create a venue that would meet the needs of future generations.
