A MONMOUTH theatre group is on the lookout for a new home after losing its base for the past nine years.

Off Centre Theatre (OCT) has used the St John Ambulance Hall in St Mary’s Street as a rehearsal space and a place to store their props and costumes since 2009.

However, with St John Ambulance looking at the future of the site, the space will no longer be available from April.

As a consequence, Off Centre Theatre is now faced with the dilemma of finding a new home for all the costumes and props in the coming months.

The group is appealing for anyone who has, or knows someone who may have a suitable premises for them, ideally for them to get settled into by April this year.

OCT chairman Stuart MacFarlane said: “We are happy to pay a fair rent, as the group is fortunate in being blessed with a solid financial base to guarantee its future. We would be delighted to hear from anyone with ideas or suggestions.”

Paul Griffiths, the chairman of Gwent council for St John Cymru Wales said the OCT had been given six months notice of the change and no plans had been made regarding the site as they were only at the first stage of the process.

He said: “Our intention is to look at the site but you have to go though a number of steps first and the first step is ending any tenancy agreements.

“We are not at the point of looking further than that.”
