What exciting things can you expect to see?
Ludlow Assembly Rooms is having a well-deserved and much needed energy efficiency drive that will help us be sustainable for future generations.
We are dedicated to providing community spaces and access to artistic events to all sections of the community, so you will be glad to hear that we are having a new lift installed and it will work! Those of you who have visited the auditorium over this Summer will be pleased to hear that we listened to your feedback. The auditorium will become blessed with a new energy efficient air conditioning system along with raked seating, so you will all have a great view from the new comfortable chairs and be cool!.
Our new grand entrance is going to be directly off the Castle Square and we will be restoring the building back to its former glory. The ground floor will be transformed into a combined Box Office and Visitor Information Centre which will be positioned right next to our new Café Bar where you will be able to have a pre-show dinner, meet friends for drinks or simply have coffee and cake while you watch the world go by!
So how are we paying for all of this exciting work?
We have had the amazing support of the European Regional Development Fund, The Arts Council, Shropshire Council, grant making trusts and independent donations. Costing in the region of £1.8m we are just 9% away from raising the funds needed to achieve our dream for LAR and making it one of the best rural venues in the UK. We just need a little help to push us across the finishing line. Join the many others within your community who are helping make this dream become a reality.
We are proud as an independent charity to be part of this community and we are committed to ensuring we can provide you with the best access to the arts and community spaces.
We thank you for supporting us to be able to deliver our vision.
