The joint speakers will outline the chequered history of Leith Theatre, where it is now and where it might go in the future.

About this Event

Leith Theatre was built as a gift to the people of Leith following the amalgamation with Edinburgh in 1920. The joint speakers will outline the chequered history of the Theatre, where it is now and where it might go in the future. Jack Hunter is the chair of the Board of Trustees of Leith Theatre Trust. He has been involved since 2005 in the campaign to secure, restore and operate the Theatre for the local and artistic community. Katharine Taylor is a volunteer with Leith Theatre. She has researched the history of the building from the inception of the decision to build the Theatre up to when the local action group took on the challenge of saving the building.
