THE search for a new manager for Lytham’s Lowther Pavilion theatre has moved its second act after more than 50 applications for the role from candidates all over the country.

Eleven hopefuls have now been short-listed by members of the Lowther Trust and interviews are due to take place next month, with an appointment likely to be made by the end of April. Depending on the notice required to be given by the successful candidate, it is hoped that the new manager will be ready to start in either May or June.

As the theatre is poised to be handed over to the Trustees by Fylde Council, the new manager will succeed Clive Greaney, the long-serving manager who has recently retired but have offered to help the new incumbent into the role if required.Eleven hopefuls have now been short-listed by members of the Lowther Trust and interviews are due to take place next month, with an appointment likely to be made by the end of April.
