Come along to our public meeting at Harrow Arts Centre on 24th February, 6.30pm-8.00pm to hear more about current and proposed works at the site to expand facilities.
Last year more than 11,000 classes and workshops in dance, fitness, visual arts, music, drama, literature, education and training took place at Harrow Arts Centre. And we’re looking to bring even more with our plans to transform derelict buildings. Work has already started for phase 1 bringing the three empty buildings surrounding the Elliot Hall – the Studio Theatre (most recently a café), the Boiler House and the Workshop – back to life with arts, dance, drama and fitness in designs by architects DK-CM.
The buildings, due for completion in autumn, will be spaces that new and existing community groups can hire thanks to funding secured from the GLA’s Good Growth Fund. The Studio Theatre will deliver a dance room, office and classroom; the Boiler House will become a large multi-purpose room for activities including dance, music, drama, fitness, art and yoga; and the Workshop will become four artists’ studio. New Building The second phase of work planned for the Arts Centre will replace the run down portakabins that many of the classes and activities take place in. The new building will deliver a multi-use space and artists’ studios with eight artists’ studios, three rooms available for hire and a public space. Chris Dyson Architects have been appointed to progress designs for Phase Two, with a planning application expected in Summer 2020 and the new building delivered by the end of 2021.
Come along to our public meeting at Harrow Arts Centre on 24th February, 6.30pm-8.00pm to hear more from the team undertaking Phase Two, see the designs for the new building, public space and phase 1. View the designs, meet the teams and ask any questions.
