Visit to the Shaftesbury Theatre

By Janet Brodie Murphy

I visited the Shaftsbury Theatre yesterday to view the new and ongoing renovations of this delightful Edwardian Building.

We were met my James Williams the Executive Director who toured the Theatre with us showing us all the new renovations and modifications. We also met Don Taffner the owner of the Theatre which was a delight.

As a person with mobility issues I was delighted to see how the new work has wholly incorporated the needs of the disabled and this Theatre now offers full access to wheelchair bound personnel. The facilities, including new toilets are now first class and meet all the needs of the disabled.

I came away thinking it was a gem of an Edwardian building encased now in a sturdy metal frame which has given new life to this majestic Theatre.

Big thanks everyone who made my visit so enjoyable.
