Creation of a community group in Lymm to revitalize the performing arts facilities


A COMMUNITY group in Lymm has been set up to help improve the performing arts facilities in the village.

Many locals believe that despite a thriving arts scene, with the Lymm festival, music and dance groups, bands and choirs, amateur plays and school performances, the village does not have enough space. for people to rehearse and perform successfully.

A group has been set up to discuss potential projects that could help address this issue.

Kieran Walshe, a governor of Lymm High School, hosted the first meeting.

He said: “The governors are already committed to trying to improve the facilities for the performing arts in the school.

“We have a fantastic supply and talent in music, theater and dance, but there has been very little new investment over the years in space for teaching, rehearsals and performances.

“We think it makes sense to think of facilities that can be used by the whole community, so it’s great to have elementary schools, Lymm Festival, the Lymm Neighborhood Plan group, councilors and Warrington Borough Council involved in this new group. ”

Ian Marks, President of the Lymm Festival, said: “The annual festival is a great success and we organize events not only in the summer but also at other times of the year.

“Lymm deserves to have a large, well-equipped performance hall that could host festival events but also be used by schools, community groups and many others in and around Lymm.

“There is also a real need for more space for groups to come together for rehearsals.”

The committee would like to hear from groups and individuals interested in the performing arts who have ideas to share.

Other open evening sessions will take place in November and December.
