Brewhouse Theatre in Taunton to close
Dozens of staff at the 352-seat venue have been made redundant and all scheduled performances after tonight's production of Jane Eyre have been cancelled.
The demise of the riverside theatre, which is a registered charity, has been blamed on cuts in funding.
For more on this story, including an exclusive column by Brewhouse director Robert Miles explaining the reasons for the theatre's closure, see Thursday's edition of the Somerset County Gazette.
