In the second of three short Zoom interviews, Mary Daykin continues her chat with Richard Nisbet who reflects on the central role played by Under One Roof – a pressure group formed by a variety of local organisations and individuals that worked tirelessly to turn the dream of having a dedicated arts venue into actual bricks and mortar.

It’s a tale of dedication, community engagement and no small amount of perseverance. As Richard says, “There were a lot of dark days, but funding was eventually secured and, before we knew it, architects and builders were in place.”

Look out for the final part of this interview (post date: 18/06) when Richard explains what the opening of the theatre meant to those who had worked so hard to get it, plus the Eastgate’s ongoing contribution to the wider community.
