Lamplight to be leased to Stanley town council
COUNCILLORS have agreed to lease a community theatre to a town council to save it from possible closure.
Durham County Council’s cabinet today (Wednesday, September 11) agreed to lease Stanley Civic Hall, the new name for the Lamplight Arts Centre, to Stanley Town Council for 35 years on peppercorn rent.
The move is part of a rescue package for the venue following funding cuts to Leisureworks, an arts trust which has managed the centre since 2007.
It will save the county council £116,000.
