A PERFECT PARTNERSHIP

‘As well as the cinema we have another 65 regular hirers.’ Alison MacDonald-Hughes, Centre Development Manager, New Park Centre.


A PERFECT PARTNERSHIP

My first ever visit to New Park was to the Cinema to see "Dalai Lama Renaissance," and meeting the Director, Khashyar Darvich in 2007. Little did I know then that I would return years later to join the Charity who manage the premises and facilities. I am thrilled that one of our oldest Hirers are so successful and celebrating their Ruby Anniversary this year, Over the last 45 years, New Park Community & Arts Association has worked hard to build a vibrant community venue able to respond to local people’s needs.

As well as the Cinema, we have another 65 regular hirers - last year we had 4,405 bookings, of which 363 bookings were by the Cinema to use the Auditorium. All the organisations and individuals that meet here offer such a wide range of social, cultural, recreational and welfare activities – so the Cinema’s presence at The Centre is a wonderful fit.

It means a great deal that so many groups and clubs stay with us over time and I hope that the Cinema has a bright future ahead!
