No visitors or mail please.
The Friends have no access to, or control of, the building, which is currently only partially in use, as a slot machine lounge by Merkur Casino UK.
We understand the freehold has been sold to Ruach City Church from Hold Land South East; the headlease held by Mecca Bingo (Top Rank) is being cancelled; and Merkur’s lease amended. These changes are not currently showing at the Land Registry.
The Friends of Streatham Hill Theatre is a volunteer-run charity campaigning to save this ‘sleeping beauty’ for the benefit of the community.
We are registered in England as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) Number CE024993 and Registered Charity Number 1193643.
