Lincoln theatre school burgled

Lincolnshire Police are appealing for information following the burglary of a theatre school in Lincoln.

On Wednesday 4 January, the police received a call at 12.52pm with a report of a burglary taking place at the Curious Theatre School on Clasketgate.

Theatrical props and other equipment were reported to have been destroyed and several items, including a drum kit, keyboard and photography equipment worth thousands of pounds were stolen from the building.

A 28-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday 4 January on suspicion of commercial burglary. He has been released on police bail while inquiries are ongoing.

It’s believed there have been a number of people coming and going from the property between 23 December and 4 January.

The Curious Theatre School supports children from all backgrounds and is also a Community Interest Company, hoping that by obtaining art and community led grants it will make even more students’ dreams come true.

A GoFundMe page has been set up by a mum whose daughters attend the school to help it back on its feet. It highlights how over the Christmas closure, people have broken into the building and stolen everything, including cameras, computers, costumes, and recording equipment. People are also said to have been squatting in the building, leaving used needles and bodily fluids behind.

The Curious Theatre School was set up in 2019 by actor Ayden Callaghan and presenter and West End performer Sarah Jane Honeywell.
