Empire Theatre, Halstead
The Empire Theatre Halstead was revived as a place of entertainment in 1978 after a period of inactivity that stretched back to 1971 when the Foulconbridge brother's tenure came to an end. Halstead Town Council bought the building and then leased it to the Empire Theatre Trust with the intention of restoring the Empire Theatre as a place for local entertainment that had been the envy of many similar sized towns during earlier decades of the 20th century.

Today the Empire Theatre is fully independently run by the Empire Theatre Trust which is made up of a collection of enthusiastic local residents giving their time on a voluntary basis. Many forms of entertainment are put on at the theatre including tribute acts, 60s concerts, country music, comedy, drama productions and pantomime - all making great use of a state of the art lighting desk and new sound equipment provided by trustees.
