Restoration Project – Day One

It’s been a long time coming … but today the contractors who have been set with the task of restoring our Grade II listed Old Fire Station moved into the site at 8am this morning.

Camelot Europe who have provided security for the building since last year handed over keys to Matthew Cox, Commercial Director of Ash Contacting Ltd. at 9am. The live-in guardians who vacated the Old Fire Station in the last 24 hours left the building exceptionally clean and tidy and we are very grateful for the services Camelot have provided these past 10 months.

Ash Contracting Ltd. will be working with our appointed architects Thomas Ford and Partners under the guidance of the HLF over the next 14 months to transform our beloved building into a premier theatre space for South London. When we return in late 2017, SLT will have a rejuvenated home where we will continue to produce and promote theatre, culture & the arts for the local community of West Norwood and beyond.

During the next 14 months we will be posting regular updates charting the progress of the restoration which you can follow here on our website. We still have to raise a shortfall of funds, so if you can help in any way please take a moment to visit our Support page.

In the meantime, we continue to entertain and create theatre at our temporary home at Stanley Halls in South Norwood where we would love to see you at our upcoming shows.
