King's Lynn Guildhall is 'financial thorn in side of council', Lynn News letters
This seems a good reason to close the lot down and flog it off. Clearly in the way of her market driven objectives.
Little is known about Shakespeare and his “Admiral’s Men” Company but what is known is that during the (1580) Puritan years, London theatres were closed down and acting companies managed to survive by touring small rural theatres.
It is more than probable that they came to Lynn. The Guildhall Theatre was founded in 1490 and had various uses including a theatrical one. However it is a financial thorn in the side of our borough council who have little regard for public service and culture.
Councillor Nockolds’s secret role would seem to be to discourage these ‘non-profitable’ places and we should all fear for the future of the library, The Walks, the South Gate and the South Lynn Brick Kiln, already condemned. I see no help forthcoming for the ancient guildhall and historic Lynn from an ignorant and cultureless council.
