The Shaw Theatre gets a new home from next week when it moves from Euston Road to the Brix Theatre in Brixton. Earlier this year management at the Shaw announced that the theatre would have to shut after the office block which houses it was sold off by Camden council. Yesterday it was confirmed that closure has been averted by the agreement of a new venue which will be refurbished using pounds 750,000 of Brixton Challenge funds. This should boost Brixton's appeal as a centre for the arts.
