In 1998, Louth Playgoers got stuck into cleaning up the derelict Old Drill Hall in Victoria Road - the first job of it being transformed into a state of the art theatre.
The playgoers had bought the building after it had been left empty for years.
The theatre team was determined to make their dream a reality.
And how right they were.
The building - now the Riverhead Theatre - has proved to be a big success and is one of the town’s popular local attractions.
