Some 170 people have helped restore a Bournemouth theatre which was built for Frankenstein author Mary Shelley.

Proposals for the revamp of the Shelley Theatre in Boscombe, Dorset, were displayed in the 1840s building on Saturday.

Shelley’s son, Sir Percy Shelley, bought Boscombe Manor House for his mother and added the theatre.

Patrick Keats, the theatre development director, said: “It’s a real community project that aims to preserve and promote the cultural heritage of the manor.”

Funding is being sought.
