Researcher comments/remarks
Built in 1909 the building has had a variety of uses including a garage and the Lyttelton Waterside Workers Social Club. More recently the Lyttelton Working Mens' Club has provided rehearsal and performance space to the group which has become the Loons Circus Theatre Company. This partnership has drawn up plans and has begun to restore the building and convert the upper floor into a theatre, complete with a fly tower to enable aerial performances. The rebuild campaign has attracted the services of British actress Emily Blunt as its patron.
