Last year, plans to develop an exciting new community arts centre for Telford in the former Clifton Cinema and adjoining building in Wellington took a significant step forward this week with the creation of a Community Benefit Society – The Clifton Community Arts Centre Limited.
This formalised the ad-hoc Steering Group and opens opportunities to apply for a range of grants and external funding. It also creates the necessary legal footing for the Community Share Issue to raise the first £0.5M towards the purchase of the site, you can apply for your shares here.
The previous film showings were held at Belmont Hall in Wellington, and all three films were a sell out, with people queuing outside in scenes reminiscent of the heydays at The Clifton Cinema. The sponsorship opportunities start at £50, and you can download a form here [Clifton Film Festival Autumn 2014], or contact the organisers here
