    I thought this one could have be really good inside! In reality its probably one of most stripped out and empty examples out there.. :(

    I first looked at it maybe a year or so ago. It looks great from the outside and i must apologise as this report is pretty incomplete without external shots. When we returned recently nothing much had changed and there was no real sign of any work going on apart from a few heaps of rubble in the yard which could have come from anywhere. We found a silly way in which took quite a bit of wiggling and pushed our flexibility to the very maximum so you can imagine it was a big disappointment to find the auditorium stripped back to the brick! To the rear of the stage there is a 4-5 story block of dressing rooms and a basement but apart from a few old cans and the remains of a piano they were empty. I poked my head up into the fettid air conditioning rooms but though better of it. Back in the Auditorium we spotted a pair of projector lamp houses in a pile of scrap, an annoying sign that the place had probably been amazing at the time of closure and that we were just a bit too late. The front of the building had just two floors. Both of which retained their plaster work and comedy murals from its days as a snooker hall.

    Apologies for the photos. I didn't have much motivation!
