Reviews of Applecart Arts in London
Applecart Arts venue information
In January 2017, Applecart took over the management of the well-loved Harold Road Community Centre in Upton Park in the hope of keeping the building open and saving it from demolition.
The venue is comprised of a beautiful old Methodist Church, built in 1902 and a more modern community hall built in the 1950s and offers a variety of spaces and facilities.
Applecart Arts has maintained the community links with the building, still providing space for local charities and organisation, whilst at the same time developing a new theatre, studio and rehearsal spaces as well as a café and box office. We’re hoping this will create sufficient revenue to keep the building open and renovate it in such a way that it meets the highest modern standards of safety and accessibility.
Over the next few years all our fundraising efforts will go into developing the creative use of the building: upgrading the premises into a state of the art venue available for everyone to enjoy. We’re delighted that our plans have the support of the Theatres Trust, the national advisory public body for theatres:
“Cultural facilities play an important role in the local community, both through their role as a place for entertainment, and also by supporting shared social activity and wellbeing through engagement in the arts. This is particularly relevant within the London Borough of Newham, which has relatively few cultural facilities of the nature proposed, compared to other parts of London.”
Applecart Arts hopes to build on our already strong community partnerships whilst extending an invitiation to more visitors, artists and creative companies.
We look forward to welcoming you. Come and visit us, see the centre evolve and become part of our community!
