Prema Arts Centre
A converted Baptist Chapel, it had always suffered from poor access and facilities. As part of a lottery funded scheme this was radically changed in 1997-98 by adding a new entrance, and fitting a new exhibition space, disabled lift and toilets into the existing building.
But after 15 years much had changed - Prema was long overdue for new repairs, updating and reconfiguration. Working closely with the Director and staff, we obtained planning permission and substantial funding to enable this exciting work to go ahead. Prema now has better access and acoustics, more (and more comfortable) workshops, and a weathertight roof - but still all its old character.
