New community space in Hatfield for hire and needing donations of furniture

The Opera Players have been fortunate enough to be given full access to a large, unused first-floor space in Hatfield for charitable use. They have called it The Hatfield Hub. http://www.operaplayers.co.uk/the-hatfield-hub/

As an arts organisation, they will be running a range of workshops and productions there, but since there are a number of separate spaces there, the best use can be made by offering it to voluntary organisations and charities in the Welwyn Hatfield area. It can also be used for teaching, rehearsals and events, either regular or incidental. There is 24-hour access, with a lift, so it can even be used for storage (e.g. stage sets and props).

The intention is not to make money out of this, but there will be some small ongoing costs. Approaches from organisations will be considered on an individual basis and a small charge may be made for use of the space. It is also possible that they will ask only for a donation, or even make no charge at all.

Please contact Robin on rpg@operaplayers.co.uk if you would like more details about this.
