Witness Adrian Sunderland said the Cliffe Bonfire Society had hired the newly refurbished theatre for an event.
Bonfire Society? Event? I'm anticipating comments from the named society along the lines of "The risk assessment for the event was followed to the letter ensuring all of our members had quick and easy escape routes prior to the command "Torch it and leg it!" being issued." "The event proved to be hugely successful and most satisfying for the members." "We intend to rebook once it has risen from its ashes."
