The theatre is now being run by the Dawe Charitable Trust. There are no suggestions the trust owes any money.

Producers Freckle Productions said: “Following the financial collapse of the Broadway Theatre which has been reported, our performances of Tiddler and other Terrific Tales (18-19 August) and Tabby McTat (15-16 November) have unfortunately been cancelled.

“Despite the best intentions of the landlords the Dawe Charitable Trust, the building is not currently a working theatre and we have not received assurances that they are able to host our production this week.

“Freckle are hugely disappointed not to be able to continue with these performances and hope to return to Peterborough soon.”
