    Arrow Victoria Pavillions / Winter Gardens with permission, January 2012


    We were lucky enough to get the chance to visit this great old theatre, built in 1897 and closed in 1977.

    It's currently under restoration using funding based entirely on donations.

    We had a good few hours inside, left to our own devices whilst the volunteers were working away.

    Here's a few pics

    Visited with Rusty, Andre, Critical Mass, Chardmeister & D-Kay, met Scrappy, Blueink & Fanny Cradock outside, many thanks again for setting up the visit :thumb

    Beautiful building, and the light is lush! I know it's a matter if taste but I love the wide angle stuff! What an opportunity. I hope it's loved for many more years!

    What a stunning building, can't believe it would ever get closed, any idea why it was? Glad it is getting restored though. Great report/pictures.
    Something witty/profound.

    This place is well worth a visit and the volunteers are doing an excellent job.

    Don't know if you did it but the basement/cellars are well worth a look, bit flooded down there last time I went down, someone had been aquiring the lead off the roof.
