Ive added the restoration of the Alexandra Palace East Wing theatre to the projects that members of the public can vote for in our annual Aviva community award event. Its just a case of clicking on the link below and casting your 10 votes after a 2 minute registration. Anyone can vote. The more votes, the better the chances we get the cash. Its that simple folks.Once completed, we can all look forward to school invites to see and hear the little ones start their flourishing acting and singing/ dancing careers in a proper theatre environment thats actually one of the last of its kind in Europe.Opened by Queen Victoria, the theatre had been closed for decades whilst the rain, cold and damp have moved in making the chances of saving it look less and less a reality. Even from the outside, sitting as it does alongside the ice rink, it looks pretty sad and forgotten. Thats because it was. But how can you forget a theatre exists?However, some far sighted lottery funding and a new public appeal has secured enough cash to get phase 1 underway (building work has already started) but they need more. And 25K will go a long way. And its free money just needing enough votes to secure it.Do feel free to social link the heck out of this one. Voting is open for 3 weeks and then its time up and we already know it fits the criteria set by the judging panel. The Palace team are also doing their best to get the votes in as wellhttps://www.avivacommunityfund.co.uk/voting/project/view/16-5
