The project will solve the building operating as two buildings with confusing access routes for the public. It will enable us to become more sustainable, reach more people and put over 22,000 square feet of inaccessible space back into use.


The capital scheme puts all unused and unfinished space back into use and enables the front entrance to be reconnected with the rear of the building. The project means we can grow artistically, offer more opportunities for local people, create jobs and reduce our reliance on subsidy for covering our core costs by helping us generate more income.
