Curzon voted into lottery award final
CLEVEDON’S Curzon cinema has made it into the final of the National Lottery Awards thanks to support from the public.
The awards are held to recognise the positive impact lottery-funded projects make to local communities and last month supporters were asked to help vote the Old Church Road cinema into the final.
The Curzon Community Cinema received �321,900 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to help pay for its renovation and has now reached the final three 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.
The award results will be announced during a star-studded awards ceremony, which will be broadcast on BBC One later in the year. If the Curzon eventually wins, it will receive an extra �2,000 toward its work.
