Valleys theatres in the limelight


The man who led the design and delivery of the Wales Millennium Centre documents the community venues of south Wales.

Rob Firman is keen to photograph and catalogue 65 surviving theatres from Monmouth to Milford Haven amid fears that many could close in the coming years.

He told Mal Pope he wanted to pay tribute to the ambition of industrial and rural communities far from the big cities which clubbed together to finance and build theatres in their home towns.

The Theatre Trust has expressed an interest in Rob's project which may be result in a report or even a book.
