Tilburg council executive quit over theatre

The entire executive board at Tilburg city council resigned on Monday night following a row over a €7.5m plan to convert a cinema into a theatre and rent it out to tv comic and actor Arijan van Bavel.

Councillors rejected the board-backed plan, saying it was built on ‘financial quicksand’.
