Plans to buy both of North Devon Theatres have been announced. North Devon Theatres Trust has made an offer to purchase the Queens Theatre in Barnstaple and the Landmark in Ilfracombe from North Devon Council. The news was revealed by council leader Des Brailey at a meeting of the full council last night (Wednesday). He said the trust had made an offer to buy the two premises on a long lease, but everything else was confidential at the moment. But Mr Brailey said he could not take any questions on the issue or discuss it further until a report had gone before the councils executive committee. Richard Purchase, executive chairman of North Devon Theatres Trust confirmed: We have made an offer and are continuing discussions with North Devon Council. We hope to have more information by the end of April.
