END OF THE THEATRE BUILDING
May 2012 Croydon Council unexpectedly withdrew financial support
(on Warehouse Theatre's 35th birthday) - the Council had supported
the theatre for 30 years
until 2008, during which time its international reputation was established,
and more support had been agreed.
This withdrawal forced the managing company,
Warehouse Theatre Company Limited, into Administration.
a new independent company, was quickly set up
in order to keep the Warehouse name alive, as
its established reputation
couldn't be replaced in Croydon, London, the UK or Internationally.
The lease of the Warehouse Theatre building ran out
on 27 November 12 and the landlords
carried out a survey to check its safety. Unfortunately, the
survey revealed serious structural problems,
and the building, sadly, has now been demolished.
