Curzon in National Lottery Awards semi-final
CLEVEDON’S Curzon cinema has reached the semi-finals of this year’s National Lottery Awards and people are being asked to vote it into the final.
The awards recognise the positive impact Lottery-funded projects make to local communities.
The Curzon Community Cinema received �321,900 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to help pay for its renovation and has now been shortlisted into the final 10 in the awards’ Best Heritage Project category.
Since being refurbished, the Old Church Road building has been utilised as a great community facility and, this year, has been celebrating its centenary following its opening in 1912.
Director Gareth Negus said: “We’re delighted to have reached the semi-final of the awards – the news was a marvellous 100th birthday present.
