A FRESH campaign to save Swansea's historic Palace Theatre has been launched on Facebook.
Save the Palace Theatre - Swansea had received more than 2,000 likes, as of yesterday, after calls for the under threat building to be saved gathered momentum.
Now the organisers are appealing for people to spread the message by liking and sharing the page which carries details of the fight to rescue the rapidly deteriorating building, first opened in 1888.
Swansea Council has made £75,000 available to the owners to carry out work on the High Street theatre, which last year was named as one of the 10 most endangered Victorian and Edwardian buildings in England and Wales.
A spokesman for the page said: "It looks like years of neglect are really starting to threaten the integrity of the building, despite the council making £75,000 available to the owners to help with urgent repairs.
"All the owners would have to do to access this is set up a building preservation trust (BTP).
"Last month we sent a list to Swansea Council's conservation team of people who were prepared to assist the owners with a BPT.
"The list included a professional fundraiser, a historian, an industrial archaeologist, stonemasons with experience working with Cadw, building project managers and a quantity surveyor.
"What more are the owners waiting for? They have the contact details of people who are willing to give time and energy to help, they have money from the council waiting for them to start repairs. What's the hold up?"
This week fire crews were sent to the High Street building following reports of unsafe masonry.
A Swansea Council spokesman said: "A recent inspection found some loose masonry high up on the side of the building that borders Bethesda Street.
"We have contacted the building's private owners and have stressed that they need to arrange for repair works to be carried out urgently so that the road can safely reopen."
