RAISE THE ROOF: Watford’s Pump House makes accessibility improvements thanks to grant

 Published on: 30th May 2023   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

A range of accessibility improvements have been carried out at Watford’s Pump House Theatre thanks to a grant of more than £19,000.

The £19,383 funding from Watford Borough Council’s Neighbourhood Grant has allowed improvements to the accessibility of the venue and enhancements to the exterior look of the building.

Lee Farman, chair of the Pump House Theatre and Arts Trust, said: “The Pump House is a theatre for the people and is dedicated to making its facility accessible and inclusive to all. We look forward to welcoming the community to our newly improved theatre.”

Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said: “The Pump House Theatre is not just a building, it’s a community space where history, education and accessibility come together to create an exciting and inclusive arts venue. These improvements will help enhance this offer further.”

This follows the ongoing Raise the Roof campaign, a fundraising mission to raise £750,000 to replace the roof of the venue.
