Work is underway at Ludlow Assembly Rooms (LAR) which will result in the venue having new seating, air conditioning, increased accessibility and much more. The work will mean that there will be a 50% reduction in the building’s carbon footprint, with a new and reliable lift, better toilets and baby changing, plus improved seating with enhanced visibility in the auditorium.
The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund, Arts Council England, Shropshire Council and LAR. Work is being carried out by Shropshire-based PaveAways and is due to be completed by late September.
LAR chair Gareth Williams says, “It’s great to see the project actually coming to life. It’s been a long time in development with the hard work of previous chairs Tony Blench and Mike Penn and all our many friends and supporters helping to bringing us to where we are today.”
LAR continues to deliver arts in different venues while their Ludlow base is being overhauled, with a sold-out appearance by Fairport Convention (pictured) set to take place at Bridgnorth Castle Hall on Saturday 1 June.
