Council neglecting cultural assets

YES, it's excellent news that Hayley Westenra and Jonathan Ansell will be appearing at the Marina Theatre, in Lowestoft, but Waveney District Council is not responsible and not to be congratulated.

YES, it's excellent news that Hayley Westenra and Jonathan Ansell will be appearing at the Marina Theatre, in Lowestoft, but Waveney District Council is not responsible and not to be congratulated.

It is however responsible for neglecting to maintain the theatre building inside and out, resulting in its present state.

When there is heavy rain, such as we have had several times recently, water pours through the ceiling in the circle and down the walls of both staircases causing severe damage.

The seats in the stalls and the decoration in the auditorium are long overdue for renovation and the toilets leave a lot to be desired.

Lowestoft has few cultural and architectural assets so it's vital that the Marina Theatre is preserved and becomes a venue where we can be proud to welcome artists of the calibre of Hayley Westenra and Jonathan Ansell.
