Salford set for £38m arts centre

25th August 2011

A new arts centre is to be built at the University of Salford at a cost of GBP 38 million, it has been confirmed.

The state-of-the-art facility will be constructed on University Road and play host to performance and exhibitions, as well as staging events for both the university's students and the general public.

It will be situated next to the Chapman Building, which acts as the university's current arts facility, and will be primarily used by students from Media, Music & Performance and Art & Design courses.

University vice-chancellor Martin Hall said the venue, which should be completed by summer 2014, will be 'an important cultural centre' for students and the public alike and help to boost arts and creativity in the region.

Earlier this year, the University of Salford unveiled plans to turn the former home of scientific pioneer James Joule into part of an energy research centre, with staff set to move into Joule House in October.
