New studios showcased at Redbridge Drama Centre
TWO new state-of-the-art studios have been unveiled at Redbridge Drama Centre in a �100,000 move aimed at keeping youngsters off the streets.
TWO new state-of-the-art studios were unveiled at Redbridge Drama Centre on Thursday (Sept 16).
The centre in Churchfields, South Woodford now boasts high-tech computers and theatre equipment after receiving a �100,000 cash injection from Telford Homes, which owns the Queen Mary’s Gate development in High Road.
The number of workshops available will now be increased and the theatre programme will be expanded.
The Mayor of Redbridge Cllr Jim O’Shea declared the studio open at a ceremony which was attended by councillors, centre staff and representatives from Telford Homes.
