It’s a sad day for Waterford, the arts and entertainment industry, as the Central Arts venue has announced its plans for closure.
Sadly, this isn’t going to be the last dance space or arts venue to unfortunately be forced into closure, during these unprecedented time, as the team running the venue announces the closure of the much loved building.
The statement reads:
“With the heaviest of hearts we must bring you the news that we’ve been forced to make the extremely tough decision to close our beloved venue of six years following a very difficult time for us, our team and our family; as it has been for everyone working in arts and entertainment.
Central Arts was a space to create, explore, dance and most importantly meet. We have always been bolstered by our community and colleagues support and today has been no different. Messages and well wishes reminding us why we love you all so much.
We are only closing the venue – our festival and events will continue; just in different ways and in new homes. Thank you all so much for making this riskiest of ventures – an independent family-run Arts company – a reality.
We have just three events left: Fred Cooke this Friday and two nights with Joanne McNally next week and then we’ll be closing our doors for good.
It’s been a blast!
No regrets, just love and ready for the next adventure, John and Ciara.”
