We're grateful for all the views that have been expressed here and in emails to us on the subject of theatre and music reviews in the Chronicle.
We are continually reviewing our editorial coverage and have come to the conclusion that there is only limited benefit in carrying reviews of productions and concerts that have often come to an end by the time we are on the streets.
It seems to us that there is a wider interest in productions at the Theatre Royal, and we will continue to provide reviews of these.
In a busy, demanding and articulate city, every piece of our coverage – from the biggest front-page story to the tiniest piece of sports news – has to justify its existence, fighting for its right to be in the paper.

But we are absolutely committed to publicising and previewing extensively as many theatre and music events as space will allow.
We are here to reflect and celebrate the rich diversity of artistic life in this city – and always will be.
And that's not just in our The Guide entertainment section. In recent months, our news pages have carried stories about Next Stage Theatre Company's bursaries, the expansion of the Mission Theatre, the 50th anniversary of the Zenith Youth Theatre Company, and nominations for the annual Rosebowl Awards.
We are by no means alone among weekly newspapers of our size in concentrating on previews rather than reviews, and we are keen that our website www.thisisbath.co.uk plays a part in carrying some reviews.
We look forward to having the chance to explain and discuss these issues face to face at the meeting organised by Theatre Bath at the Mission Theatre at 5.30pm on October 8.
