Some slightly more positive news… We’ve just received the statement below from Soho Theatre and WFCT, and we wanted to share it with you straight away.
Please don’t stop sending your wonderful Tweets, Facebook posts and emails at this important time (see the post below this if you haven’t done these already, it only takes 2 minutes).
But it’s great news that Soho is optimistic about the possibilities. Maybe Walthamstow’s Christmas wish will come true?
This is a brief statement from Soho Theatre and WFCT in response to some of today’s activity on social media.
Soho Theatre and the Waltham Forest Cinema Trust are keen to make clear that the support of Waltham Forest Council for our plans for the former Granada Cinema have been unwavering.
It is a constantly changing picture at the moment, with a lot of hopeful possibilities. The council have facilitated, and continue to support, productive meetings between the concerned parties.
While some elements of our plans are uncertain right now, we are confident we can achieve a fantastic vibrant venue for everyone if we continue to work together in this way. This would not be possible without the overwhelming support of local people, the council and notably the council leader Chris Robbins.
