Community groups given opportunity to signal Founders Theatre interest


Hamilton City Council
6 October 2017

Hamilton’s community groups are being invited to signal if they are interested in potentially taking over Founders Theatre.

Hamilton City Council closed Founders Theatre in February 2016 due to safety concerns relating initially to its flying system, and then subsequently its performance in an earthquake.

As part of ongoing discussions on the city’s theatres – including the proposed Waikato Regional Theatre project being led by Momentum Waikato – the Council wants to determine if there are community groups interested in taking over Founders.
