Project to Extend the Performance Department Facilities

By Adrian Frost, Assistant Principal, 26 July 2013

We've always known that the Performance Department at College is built upon very solid foundations, but how many of us, as we walked along the main drive to college every day, stopped to wonder just what was underneath the dance floor of the College Performance Studio?

It turns out that it was six hundred tonnes of compacted rubble!

Thanks to a large team of builders, who worked for ten weeks, to fill one hundred skips - we can now start to get some sense of the huge space that by next spring will have been transformed into two additional performance spaces, a changing area, costume store and individual study facilities, as part of a quarter of a million pound project to extend college performance facilities.
