Save the Hazlitt

It has recently been announced that Maidstone Borough Council is considering withdrawing its funding to the Hazlitt Theatre, Maidstone. In turn, this withdrawal will see the closure of the building itself. This petition is a plea to the council to reconsider their decision.

The Hazlitt's walls have nurtured young peoples voices, housed laughter and created memories for so many others. The Hazlitt is a space that has paramount creativity, embraced local talent and championed itself at being a pillar in the memories of so many people who grow up and live in Maidstone.

It would be devastating for Covid to take away something so integral to our community. The Hazlitt needs your help more than ever.
