Gives the community a floor we can all dance on!

Lansdown Hall was bought for £112,500 from Gloucestershire County Council in February 2000 at less than market cost because of the social benefits of an arts centre.
SCW enabled the successful running of The SPACE by Reclaim Arts Project Charity Ltd, and sold it to Reclaim in 2006 for the same price, so that Reclaim could make the most of conversion grants to make it into a first class performing arts venue. A covenant restricts resale to arts and educational uses.
