Jump have retracted their planning application
On the 22nd March 2010 Jump withdrew their planning application
to use The Dell in Hitchin pending an 'ecological survey'.
Many thanks to everyone who took the time to object to the planning
We are not currently sure what the ecological survey will involve,
or if they intend to submit another planning application, but obviously,
when we have more information, we'll keep you posted.
The Dell as it was in 1951as the 'The Woodside Open Air Theatre'.
It opened in 1951 with a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream,
and following a period of neglect it has become the venue for occasional
productions, notably as part of the Hitchin Festival.
