We were delighted with the turn out for Cathedral Group Circus Street Market exhibition in Brighton, which took place on 26th-27th April. Many thanks to those that came and were so enthused in chatting to the South East Dance team about The Dance Space and the wider development. You can read more about what went on here.
If you attended the exhibition, you may have picked up our new publication about The Dance Space and/or spoken to our team about this exciting project. If you missed out, you can now view the publication online by clicking the following link: The Dance Space leaflet 2013.
A website including the full public exhibition is now live at www.circusstreetmarket.com including a simple online questionnaire for people to fill in and share their views on the wider development by Sunday 12th May for this pre-planning application stage of the project. A planning application is expected to be submitted later in the summer.
