The Carnegie Theatre is one of the most used buildings in the town. The cafe in the day is always vibrant and the theatre shows cater for all tastes and is often packed to the rafters. Due to the population of the area the theatre suffers when hosting diverse events and really does need financial support to continue supporting these. If that support isnt forthcoming I believe Workington would lose a gem of a theatre. The building is beautiful but needs investment to keep it so. It must be difficult for the theatre to do this themselves when they rely on their own income and in today’s economy people aren’t eating and drinking as much as they have and so the profits in this area dwindle. I think investing in the cultural diversity of their events, their building upkeep and even more for their office spaces (left hardly usable from its council days) would bring a lease of life to the area and more uses than ever for this iconic building.
