Soho Poly: Historic London fringe theatre to be restored after grant

  • A historic fringe theatre which fell into disrepair is set to be restored to its former glory after being awarded a grant. The Soho Poly helped to launch the careers of the careers of Hanif Kureishi, Simon Callow, and Caryl Churchill among others between 1972 and 1990, before falling into disrepair. A target of £400,000 has been set to restore the venue, in the basement of a University of Westminster building in Riding House Street, with Westminster City Council approving a £50,000 grant meaning it can go ahead.
