Aptly, one of them celebrates the beautiful Streatham Hill Theatre. As we go to press, we were contacted by the Friends of Streatham Hill Theatre to ask us to publicise their petition to Lambeth Council to uphold their decision to protect the 1928 Grade II listed theatre from possible destruction by declaring it an Asset of Community Value.
