Talks ongoing on Sidmouth Manor Pavilion and other news

Talks are continuing on the future of the Manor Pavilion Theatre. Read this and more.

MANOR PAVILION: A story on the Manor Pavilion last week stated that the East Devon District Council had said in February that it ‘would’ be transferring the theatre to the ownership of Sidmouth Town Council.

The district council has asked the Herald to point out this is not the case. At a meeting in March, the district and town councils issued a joint press release stating that they were in talks about future ownership of the theatre. Those discussions are still ongoing.
