Theatre opens for public viewings
Wyvern Theatre
The theatre's first play opens on 25 September
A theatre which closed after asbestos was found is opening to the public over the weekend.

The 600-seat Wyvern Theatre in Swindon was closed late last year, and had to be cleaned up and restored at a cost of 1.3m.

It is open between 1100 and 1600 BST on Saturday and Sunday for people to have a look around.

The first play - a mystery called The Business of Murder - is scheduled to open on 25 September.

Face painting, a bouncy castle and screenings of a film called A History of the Wyvern Theatre are among the attractions at the open days.

Andrew Hill, director of the theatre, said: "We cannot wait to throw open the doors and welcome people back to the Wyvern."
