Can we take on the old Royal Bell?

Hi there and welcome along!

I've started this blog to document the journey of finding, procuring and (most importantly) raising the money to open a community and arts space for the visitors and residents of Bromley, Kent. Over the last few years our town centre has been slowing down, shops and restaurants have closed, businesses are struggling and it just doesn't have the thriving, positive feel it used to.

Bromley has a lot going for it, its a historic market town with a whole host of fantastic old buildings (many of which were bulldozed to make way for the Glades and general redevelopment of Bromley sadly though) and if you look up above the shop signage they start telling you their stories, including the 1886 Medhurst's department store (now Primark) and whole rows of Victorian fa├žades that add character and links us to this towns history.
