Sounds very good but for many of us a cheque in sterling is either an impossibility, or else attracts very significant pain and some considerable cost in going to the bank and securing a sterling bank draft, for what is a relatively small sum for each and every issue.

Might be a lot easier if a subscription was offered, with the ability to pay by credit card. Good luck with your venture.

The Autumn edition of OLD THEATRES Britain’s cherished magazine for theatre devotees has just been published early, pending the shock announcement of the proposed demolition of Nelson Palace theatre—to become a car park. We have managed to secure colour photographs of its exterior. We are anxious to make contact with theatre groups helping to preserve theatres in the USA—an exchange of information could be very important. Just E Mail us on
