Brewhouse Theatre has officially closed down

The Brewhouse Theatre in Taunton has officially closed down today. The management announced after last night's performance of Jane Eyre that it has gone into administration. More than 50 members of staff (20 full time, 35 part time) are being made redundant.

The Somerset venue has been the stage for musicians, actors and comedians for 35 years. A candlelit vigil will be held outside the theatre tonight.
