Hull’s premier theatre has marked its 75th birthday by announcing expansion plans which could see it taking over a nearby fire station.

Hull New Theatre’s 75th anniversary celebrations on yesterday coincided with proposals to expand into the city’s Worship Street-based Central Fire Station.

Hull City Council cabinet members are due to consider the feasibility study plans before December.

The plans include the existing fire station closing and moving to a different city centre address.

Steps to upgrade the theatre’s amenities are already under way.

Disabled toilets have almost been fitted, while an infrared heating structure is also being installed.

Councillor Terry Geraghty, portfolio holder for leisure and culture, says Hull must look ahead and ensure that it has a theatre fit for both the great-grandchildren and grandchildren of existing residents.

He says it is an “exciting” time for the city’s theatre. He hopes the plans will encourage even more Hull people to visit the facility.
