Spruce-up for city arts centre

QUAD in Derby will be undergoing new refurbishment of the café bar and box office area in May.

The arts centre has received funding to carry out the refurbishment work to the ground floor area, which will be carried out from Monday, May 9.

The refurbishment has been possible because £200,000 has been granted to Quad as a one-off capital grant of organisational development funding by Arts Council England, awarded in 2010.

Quad director Keith Jeffrey said: “Because of the current café bar design, it was difficult to develop a substantial evening trade, and we need to create a destination venue that will be attractive to people for a night out.”

The ground floor will still be accessible during the refurbishment and all services, including the café bar will be re-opened on May 27.
