PLANS for a community arts centre in Prudhoe have taken another step forward.
Numerous groups turned out at a public meeting into proposals by the town’s Dragon Tale theatre group and, as a result, a management committee is to be established to steer the project.
If all goes to plan – and both funding and a site can be secured – the building could include everything from a 200-seat theatre to a cafe or bar and adult learning spaces.

A workman was buried alive while digging a drain in the Prudhoe Urban Council's housing estate at Oaklands.
Workmates rushed to the aid of 50-year-old Richard Barclay, of Stocksfield, when the wall of the trench he was digging collapsed.
They managed to dig his head and shoulders free before finally pulling him from the earth. He was found to be suffering from shock and bruising.
