The town's new flagship Arts and Cultural centre, The Curve will now open in early April 2016, a slight delay, but one that ensures these facilities are delivered to the highest possible standard and bring real value to the people of Slough.
Once open it will be a game changer to the town centre, and will contribute to our plans to breath new life into the Heart of Slough and provide residents and visitors alike with a vibrant centre with great places to live, work, rest and play (to borrow a phrase from a local employer).
The Curve is unique and innovative with a dynamic design and it is very important to us it is delivered to residents with the quality we expect.
The Curve will become the central meeting point through its Cafe which will have a defined space along with an associated garden terrace which can be accessed directly from the counter. Café users will also be able to use any part of the building which, over three floors, includes more than 220 seats.
“I am incredibly excited by the new opportunities this building will afford to all residents - it will be home to a new performance space, holding up to 280 people, provide access to adult learning and house exhibition space for Slough museum”
— Cllr Martin Carter
It will house the town's main library, with brand new state of the art facilities which will eplace the old library across Windsor Road from The Curve, will be a new children's library with new and well-loved activities for kids and families, study areas, wi-fi, computer and internet access as well as thousands of books, audio books, CDs and DVDs.
Cllr Martin Carter said "I am incredibly excited by the new opportunities this building will afford to all residents in terms of leisure, culture and the arts.”
Your Labour Council has been working to improve our blocks of flats. Eyre Green in Britwell is a great example of this.
