The “Space” Theatre – Bodiam
The old Sports Hall at Claremont Senior School was transformed into a Performing Arts Centre during 2013. It is now a two storey facility incorporating a 250 seat theatre, a lighting and sound gallery, music practice rooms, as well as a Music and IT classroom and a large multi-function space. The style of the build is contemporary and it is used for drama and music lessons, as well as productions, concerts and events. Plans for a cinema projector and cyclorama are underway. Senior School students, as well as Prep ones, benefit from this new venue, called the SPACE Theatre. It was officially opened in December 2013 by local pianist/singer Liane Carroll.
