Built in 1937, seating 1200 in stadium arrangement. Had been empty for many years, but has now been extensively redeveloped as a community centre, somewhat appropriately incorporating a radio station! The exterior has been carefully restored, and a facsimile replacement mast added. See here for a closeup detail of the facade, or here for a shot just before the mast was replaced.
A new photo here taken at night shows the wonderful new neon display...
A photo c1993, courtesy Norrie Mcnamee, shows the Radio as the George bingo hall; and another one here c1996 courtesy Chris Doak.
