Acton Arts Project

Fancy a night out in Acton High Street? A movie and a meal in the same building? Now’s your chance…..

Five years after its doors were closed to the public a big step’s been taken to revive a landmark community building in Acton for exactly that.

A new life for The Old Library on the High Street has now moved from pipedream to prospect. A community bid’s been lodged with Ealing Council to transform it into a state-of-the-art cinema and cafe-restaurant in a corner of Acton crying out for regeneration – night and day.

The Acton Arts Centre Project would see the building bought by a sympathetic developer in partnership with the community to combine the films and food plan with office and performance space. Live music, theatre, and stand-up – just some of what’s also planned to energise an entertainment-free end of the High Street.

The near-30 bid trustees and advisers all live in Acton and want the best for it. You can find out more about who we are and what the bid’s about by visiting the website: www.actonartsproject.com and signing up as a supporter. Ask your friends and family to do the same.

We think Acton needs a place where the whole community can get together for daytime events and a different night out. You can make a difference by giving your support. The Council decides by December which bid wins. We think Acton needs the Acton Arts Project – and it needs YOU!

Please show your support by:

  • coming to the public meeting to hear all the bids. Everyone Active on the High Street 7.30 pm November 21st.
  • forwarding this message to any local groups, websites, social media accounts you have. We would like everyone to have the opportunity to comment.
  • delivering a few fliers for people who don’t use social media.
  • Comment, like, share the Actonartsproject on any social media including W3 forum.
