Description

Comedian Eddie Nestor told us what the Hackney Empire means to him. Not many people know that we're actually a charity, and every pound that we raise gets spent improving what we do. But with a theatre built in 1901 in can cost a lot of money to maintain the building. This is where the National Lottery stepped in with a grant to restore the theatre and build new state of the art facilities. We're now in the running for a National Lottery award that we plan to use as the start of our building reserve, a pot of money set aside for unexpected repairs.
