Covent Garden Theatre Museum: Closing?

Theatre Museum in Covent Garden"Britain’s only national museum for the performing arts, Covent Garden’s Theatre Museum..." may close unless a way is found to finance it.

Save London Theatres Campaign, long at the forefront of theatre preservation, makes some very good points at why the Theatre Museum at Covent Garden should be preserved.

On the other hand, this thoughtful study shows that resources are being attempted to be put to best use, and that the online Theatre Project is meeting a great need at an economical cost. Meanwhile, the most important thing is that the collections are safe, and will be seen, albeit at different times and at different venues...

Times are definitely changing...
