Royal Departure Cancelled

Thankfully I've finally got a solidly decent reason to shout "Hurrah for TDC", just when all thought it unlikely too. That vital bastion of culture the Theatre Royal has received a healthy cheque for £25,000 to aid Margate's most beautiful venue in surviving the forthcoming year. This darling building came close to the final curtain but was thankfully rescued during the last act.
Hopefully this is just the start of treating this elderly dame amongst theatres with the respect she deserves. An oft repeated neo-snub is how the crimbo lights are typically turned on by a star of the panto running at the Marlowe in Canterbury, when we have our very own panto running here.
