June 30th: The Friends of Streatham Hill Theatre
Jools Holland has joined The Friends of Streatham Hill Theatre campaign as a Patron, to help find a sustainable solution to the future
of the building and promote its return to use as an arts and culture venue for the community. With dazzlingly opulent interiors, this
exceptional 1920s theatre is an important part of London's rich cultural history. Save Britain's Heritage (SAVE), has added Streatham Hill
Theatre to its Buildings at Risk Register 2022 which highlights historic buildings whose future is uncertain, and ultimately seeks to
return them to use and secure the buildings' futures.
'The prospect of bringing back to life a theatre in South London, with a stage the equivalent size of the Palladium, is very exciting.
My friend the late Chris Barber and his jazz band played there in the fifties, and it would be so wonderful to see the Streatham Hill
Theatre filled with all kinds of music once again. I'm delighted to add my support to this important campaign to save it.'

Speaking out for the first time about his own diagnosis, Jools explains the importance for men to understand more about prostate cancer,
talk about it, and an early diagnose:
"I had no awareness of prostate cancer, no symptoms that I noticed whatsoever, until I was diagnosed following a routine blood test in 2014.
Thankfully I was successfully treated, but if more people were aware of their risk and caught the disease early, then more lives would be
saved. I would certainly stand on top of my piano and shout about it because I think it's really important. If Raise the Roof was able to
save one man's life it would be the best thing ever that would come out of this."
