Project Description

In 2014 ArtReach has worked with the Brewery Square Development Company in Dorchester, Dorset, to undertake a detailed Feasibility Study for the potential conversion of the former Maltings building, within the Brewery Square development, into a 400 seat theatre and arts centre.

The project has involved wide consultation with communities and artists in Dorchester and beyond, and the development of a full indicative programme to enable detailed business modelling for the project. The redevelopment of Brewery Square is already well underway, with a very successful first phase having completed and the establishment of a substantial economy of restaurants and leisure facilities.

It is anticipated that the conversion of The Maltings into an iconic theatre and arts centre will form part of the next stage of development, along with substantial, associated residential development.
