The wooden frames are now “dangerous” and “rotten”
The Romford Theatre, which is based in a historic war memorial, is aiming to raise around £3,600 in the next two days to help replace rotten wooden frames.
Over £7,000 of the original £10,500 target has already been given to the theatre via a crowdfunding page.
But it is entirely self-funded and still needs help raising that final amount before it re-opens on Monday.
“Brookside Theatre is an integral part of the community and the central focus for Arts and Culture in Romford,” reads a statement from the theatre.
“The windows of this important community asset are in a terrible state of disrepair and urgently need replacing if the theatre is able to reopen its doors when safe to do so, following Covid-19 and government forced closure.
“The original wooden frames are now dangerous, rotten and barely hold the glass. Not only would new windows greatly improve public safety but also the aesthetics, security and energy efficiency of these historic buildings.”
