Preston Guild Hall: Crumbling Raac concrete fears at venue
Preston's Guild Hall has suffered a fresh setback to its re-opening over fears it has crumbling concrete issues, the city council said.
The Grand Hall and Charter Theatre will be secured while specialist structural engineers investigate if it "is present in the roof panels".
Both venues have been closed since 2019 but they were due to open soon.
Schools and other buildings have been closed after reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (Raac) was found.
Several theatres have also been closed over safety fears.
