Studio BAAD and Rick Mather among arts beneficiaries

  • Comment

The Arts Council has given £15.5 million of lottery money to 68 projects including work by Rick Mather Architects and Studio BAAD.

Just under £2.5 million will help pay for Studio BAAD to turn a courthouse in Warrington into a £3.5 million arts centre. A design by Tim Ronalds Architects for Dartford Grammar School's arts centre, named after former pupil Mick Jagger, received nearly £1.7 million.

Almost £1.4 million was granted to a Ferguson Mann refurbishment of an 1820 concert hall, St George's Brandon Hill, in Bristol. Rick Mather Architects' work for the 500-seat Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, received £614,000 for development work. The project will include an improved foyer and offices.

Altrincham Garrick Society in Cheshire was given £675,000 to renovate its 1930s theatre to a design by Stephenson Bell. And Zoo Architects' refurbishment of Glasgow's Tramway received a grant of £2.3 million towards a total project cost of £3 million.
