In September 2015, the charity GO! took on the challenge of restoring the great Palace Theatre in Plymouth’s Union Street. After raising a huge £16,878 from 451 backers on Crowdfunder, work could begin on the project.
GO! took the time to send us this update, and as they say: “a lot can happen in a year”.
So far, GO! has achieved:
- Being announced as the UK Winners in the national Epic Awards 2016.
- The opportunity to use the theatre to host Palace Theatre Philharmonia and Chorus Summer 2016.
- A one year on feature on BBC Spotlight to check out what the team have achieved so far.
- GO! Palace Theatre appoints Advisory Board ready for its first meeting this June.
- A digital tour around the Palace Theatre thanks to Enigma Eye, filmed this February 2016, now available online.
- Plymouth College of Art Photography Yr 1 Students visit the Palace Theatre to photograph the building.
