Tower Arts Centre handed over to King's School

Tory County Council Leader Ken Thornber today decided to hand Winchester's much loved Tower Arts Centre over to the neighbouring school. Read about the decision here.

Grants have been reduced, the excellent Tower management team will be lost and the decision makes clear that what financial support remains is for "cultural provision and programming at the Tower Arts Centre and other venues in Winchester."

"Other venues" sounds to me like code for running down the Tower as a home for live theatre and music. This is a sad day for the arts in Winchester.

Read Martin Tod's speech in support of the Tower made at Thornber's decision day.
