Lambeth backs FoSHT campaign
Lambeth Council has backed up the commitment it made to Streatham in the recently published Streatham Investment & Growth Strategy 2019-30 by committing £7,500 to the crowdfunding campaign set up by the Friends of Streatham Hill Theatre (FoSHT), as part of their ambition to revive the former theatre.
Councillor Matthew Bennett, Cabinet Member for Planning, Investment & New Homes, wrote to the friends group, congratulating them on running an effective and inspiring campaign that had gained strong local support.
He said: “I‘m delighted this money will see the campaign meet its fundraising target and I look forward to working with the owners, FoSHT, the BID and others in bringing the former theatre back into productive use.”
