Scarborough Futurist loss, is Bridlington Spa's gain

I had a wry smile on my face when I read NB Waite's correspondence in The Scarborough News recently, relating to the state of our lovely town '“ particularly the demise of the Futurist theatre. This person should be on the council.

Futurist is a sad loss to town.

I am lucky enough to remember all the other places that were mentioned.

I have just been to Bridlington Spa to see Blood Brothers, which apparently has had a very successful run.

This show has been to the Futurist on more than one occasion and it is sad the theatre is now a pile of rubble. No longer will we see the likes of Calendar Girls and Little Voice to name but a few.

Scarborough’s loss is Bridlington’s gain.

It is a shame that the council didn’t see a good thing when it was (literally) right under its nose.
