Campaigners hoping to preserve the future of the Creed Street Theatre building have, this week, been given a glimmer of hope.

It is thought the building, commonly known as MADCAP, could be sold.

However, just last week the Trust responsible for the charity and its activities published a series of possibilities for its future.

The current favoured option is to keep the building in Creed Street in Wolverton and then look for investment to develop the facilities so they can continue to meet their objectives now and in the future.

People living in and around Wolverton, as well as those who use the service have raised a number of concerns on the building’s future, forcing Wolverton and Greenleys Town Council to put together a working group.

The group will include volunteers and town councillors and will look at ways to support the Creed Street Theatre and Arts Centre Trust, both in terms of finances and with volunteer hours and expertise.

This will mean they can plan for a sustainable future in the same building.

Sally McLellan, town Clerk to Wolverton and Greenleys Town Council, said: “The working group is focusing on achieving a positive outcome for the building and its activities and they look forward to meeting with the trustees.”

The group will look to sit down with trustees as soon as possible so that a plan can be put together to make sure that the popular arts project and building stays in Wolverton as a valuable community asset.
