Today, Sept 29th, The Yprkshire Post reports that on Monday next week Sheffield Council are to pass plans for a £4.5M restoration of Tudor Square. It will include new paving, new seating and greater landscaping of the area to make the square a much more accessible space. The new square will only enhance the charm of visiting the Lyceum and Crucible theatres.
(maybe someone can post the link to the article here!)

A classic case of ‘give a city back its old theatres and the audiences will come’. The Lyceum now takes in almost every major touring show that has either just left the West End or is on its way.

Thanks Ian for putting on the photos of the Lyceum. Sheffield never thought it would ever reopen, but thank goodness it did. It was the first live theatre I ever went to in Janaury 1958 to see Ronnie Hilton in the pantomime ‘The Sleeping Beauty’ which was presented by Gwladys Stanley Laidler, Francis Laidler’s(of Bradford Alhambra fame)widow.

Simply beautiful, a real gem. Thank God they saved it.
