Work is underway to transform the rooftop into a new creative space. This new and exciting space will be named ‘The Round’ and will be able to hold events for up to 150 people.
Once complete, this is going to be a fabulous space that will complement our existing facilities and we will be programming a range of events from murder mystery nights and poetry slams to children’s theatre, writers’ workshops and literary quiz nights.
The work on this space will take place while The Word is open and is expected to take around 3 months, with it opening in Summer 2018. The building, including the roof terrace, will remain open and operate as usual during the ongoing work. Every effort will be made to keep disruption to a minimum.
Construction contractor KPS Ltd, which is part of the Bowmer and Kirkland Group, who delivered The Word, will complete the build.
