“Our report this year really highlights theatres under threat from imminent demolition and funding cuts,” he added.

Mr Dickins expressed concerns that some currently active theatres could end up abandoned and empty, while previously closed buildings are prime targets for demolition and redevelopment.

The latest report also points out how local people are harnessing the power of social networking sites, including Facebook, to save theatres in their areas.

Other arts institutions singled out by the Theatre Buildings At Risk report include the Acorn Arts Centre in Penzance and Crewe’s Lyceum.

Bedford’s Civic Theatre, meanwhile, is earmarked for closure to be replaced by a council services centre.
