These photos were taken on a walking tour I hosted in Newcastle’s Hunter Street Mall to East End laneways in 2014.
In my hometown, Mudgee NSW, there is a theatre that has been empty for many years, since it was sold in the early 2000’s by a family which had owned it for generations. Over the last two decades there have been numerous situations in which the public has poured outcry over the disused theatre. Since 2017, when I set up a website to compile information about the theatre, the community response has been positively overwhelming!
Revive The Regent Theatre started as a blog and social media group and has grown to be an incorporated charity in 2019.
Today Theatre Lane in Swansea, Wales (UK) launched as part of the Troublemaker’s Festival featuring thirty four posters for shows at The Palace Theatre. Be quick to see what is on!
The Troublemakers’ Festival is about changing the world. More specifically, it’s about changing the world – starting with Swansea High Street.
Festival Dates: Thu 13 Jul 2017 to Sun 16 Jul 2017

Special thank you to Dan Thompson and the Volcano Theatre Team for all their support to get those posters printed and on the wall.
