Save the Hackney Empire

As you may have seen in the press, Hackney Empire's main stage is closing for around 9 months in January.

Hackney Empire has been a key cultural icon in London for over a hundred years. The temporary closure of the theatre is so that it can restructure to turn around its financial prospects.

Both Hackney Council and the Arts Council have given a great deal of support to the Empire and we hope all those involved will work together to ensure that the theatre reopens in 2010 as a successful and viable venue that continues to serve the people of Hackney and London as a whole.

You can sign the petition in support of the Empire here.
