WE GOT IT!
Earthbeat are delighted to announce that we have been
successful in our bid to acquire the old Saltburn School. At last, we will
have ‘a home of our own’ and all of our performers will enjoy using the
building, which will be designed to suit their needs.
As you know, we have had a long drawn out struggle to
find a new base but our efforts have finally paid off and the council have
granted us a 50-year lease. For those who don’t know, the basic idea is
that, primarily, the school will provide a home for the Earthbeat theatre
Company. It will also provide a resource for the community. Many of the
classrooms will be available to rent out to social enterprises, individuals
and small businesses. Other rooms, such as the dance studio, meeting room
and auditorium, will be available to hire for weekend and evening classes.
Work will now begin to renovate the old building,
which has fallen into disrepair and is in desperate need of a complete
makeover. We are asking for help from anyone who feels they could spare a
few hours to paint walls and windows, varnish floors etc Please contact us
by email at
email@example.com or call us on 07969 623118 if you’d like to be a
part of this amazing project.
We plan to hold a public meeting, in the school, on the
8th October from 7pm to set out our vision. So, if you’re
interested in renting one of the classrooms, hiring a room for a class or
just interested in what’s going on, feel free to pop along.
We’d also like to express our gratitude to all those
people who have supported us to reach this point. Without your fantastic
support we might never have realised our dream. Thank you!
