Stratford Circus closes
by Sally Bramley for The Stage
Stratford Circus, one of Britiain's newest subsidised venues, has gone into voluntary liquidation following a board decision to stop trading after Arts Council England rejected its bid to be accepted on to a recovery programme.
The theatre, which opened only two years ago as part of a £13.7 million project to develop the Stratford Cultural Quarter, also lost its £223,000 annual grant from the local authority Newham council on the same day. All staff at the venue have been made redundant and will now have to apply to the liquidator to receive their final salaries.
