Deputy Mayor Councillor Stan Heptinstall has suggested that Broxtowe Council might help Nottingham Playhouse following the decision by the county council to scrap a £94,500-a-year grant.
However, people living in Broxtowe took to Facebook saying that any money spent on the theatre would be better used within the borough’s boundary.
Stan Heptinstall writes: I think my views come across in the article in the Post. People have a right to disagree with me but I think I am taking the right line on this. It is highly unlikely that we are talking about a lot of money here and, in my view, it would be money well spent.
