Labour council closes Market Hall cinema

To quote Labout leader Hedley McCarthy "We do not see this as the closure of the cinema, we see it as the start of keeping it open." Well if the political career fails he can always get a job in stand-up comedy.  Laughing

So after almost a year of Labour control in Blaenau Gwent who's seen changes for the better?  Embarassed
Ian Jones

His hobbies include hiking, watching rugby and """""cinema""""".

Guess who's hobbie's! he will be really p***ed of at the closure of the Cinema then!!

It's off to the steelworks site then, along with Nantyglo Leisure and Beaufort Ballroom.
This labour lot have more faces than Tredegar Clock, is that going as well ?
Suggest we donate the "Lo - Cost Wetlands".

Is Beaufort Ballroom closing?

As I understood it, funding was being withdrawn because the powers that be won't fund two venues in the same locality ie. Beaufort and er... The Works.

There was a press article a year or so back I believe.

It would be a very bad move if a long-established venue, steeped in history were closed in favour of a new, out-of-town facility. Centralisation certainly sems to be the way the Council is thinking though  Crying or Very sad

'Blaenau Gwent Central' aka 'Ebbw Vale'.
