Update: February 2021
Over the past year we have been busy working on an ambitious refurbishment programme, thanks to funding secured to improve our much loved but ageing building. We are thrilled to be able to share details about this programme, which is nearing completion.
State of the Art Refurbishments
Our fully refurbished venue will include a modern, state of the art two-screen cinema complex with luxurious seating and giant screens, along with a new purpose built boutique digital lounge for additional immersive screenings and gaming. There will also be a striking redesign of the restaurant, bar and all public spaces, with new signage, branding and contemporary interiors.
New Digital Production Hub
The theatre, music venue, creative studios and warehouse will be upgraded with the latest technology, for world-class live performances, audio visual presentations, creative learning and interactive exhibitions. New facilities for music and film production will also be available, placing a new digital-led talent development and production hub at the heart of our activities.
Live Streaming for Global Events
Live streaming equipment has also been fitted throughout the venue, allowing events such as live music and theatre, festivals, conferences and weddings to be broadcast from the building to digital platforms and viewed anywhere in the world.
The programme was made possible by a range of generous funders, including individual donations and gifts from the community. We thank everyone, from the bottom of our hearts, for enabling this exciting transformation. The improvements will support our growth and help us nurture the next generation of artists and audiences.
Miriam Randall, CEO/Artistic Director of Brewery Arts said:
“This project puts cultural innovation and talent development at the heart of our work and breathes new life into our venue as we approach our 50th anniversary. When we reopen it will be a space for everyone to enjoy, a creative hub at the heart of community life that develops and showcases some of the most exciting artists and creatives working today. Thanks to the generous support from our funding partners and our fantastic local community, we can face the future with confidence.”
We can’t wait to welcome you back to our new look venue! Over the coming weeks we will be sharing images and videos of the final stages of the refurbishments, together with news about our relaunch programme.
