West Norwood fire station turned into community arts centre

A Victorian fire station in West Norwood built when emergency crews relied on horse drawn engines, is being turned into a community arts centre. The Grade II listed building was being used as a theatre by community arts group South London Theatre, but fell into disrepair. The Old Fire Station has now received more than £1.6 million pounds from the Heritage Lottery Fund for a full restoration project. 

South London Theatre is aiming to raise a further £60,000 for the restoration of the Old Fire Station. For details visit www.southlondontheatre.co.uk.
