Plans are afoot for an 850-seat lyric theatre at Whangārei’s Forum North with the group behind the idea wanting public feedback on what they’d like to see on the site.
On Saturday about 60 leaders and key members of the regional performing arts community went to the first stakeholder consultation meeting for a new 850-
seat theatre project on the Forum North Site.
The event was hosted by Creative Northland on behalf of the Forum North Trust 2013 (FNT13) which is proposing that a new performance theatre be built to form part of a performing arts precinct at Forum North.
