I am horrified to read that the district council plan to institute evening charges in the theatre car park.
It is not the charge that so dismays me, it is the chaos that will ensue.
Together the two theatres hold approximately 1,600 people, and they are mainly full for most performances. This means that at a given time, normally 7.30pm, there will be hundreds of people all queueing up to pay their money and searching for change in the dark! Many performances do not end before 10.30pm.
Are there going to be traffic wardens parading around in the dark? There will be queues at all the pay machines and theatre performances will be delayed.
