Box Office Project

Last updated: 12/04/2022

On Friday 25th February the Town Deal Board approved a variation to the Box Office project that now means it will go out to tender as a ‘cinema-led cultural offer’. This proposal came about after responses received from the soft-market test the Council carried out earlier in the year. The change has been submitted to the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Committees for approval.
