Space for stage sets and props

The Sligo Champion - - NEWS -

SLIGO Drama Cir­cle and Ev­ery­man Pro­duc­tions are look­ing for space to store their props near their Mar­ket Yard re­hearsal rooms.

The two am­a­teur drama groups have asked the Coun­cil if it has any free space to store large sets, props, fur­ni­ture and cos­tumes.

Coun­cil­lor De­clan Bree asked the Coun­cil to co-op­er­ate with both groups to help them find a stor­age space.

Act­ing Director of Ser­vices Bart­ley Gavin told Cllr Bree that “un­for­tu­nately there is no Coun­cil space un­oc­cu­pied at present which could meet the need.”

How­ever he said the Coun­cil would con­tinue to co-op­er­ate with the drama cir­cle as re­quested.

Cllr Bree, whose mo­tion was sec­onded by Cllr Tom MacSharry, said it was im­por­tant to sup­port the groups as they were a “huge part of the fab­ric of Sligo.”

“The Mar­ket Yard premises is not ad­e­quate to store large sets, props, fur­ni­ture and equip­ment,” he said.
