What People Say About South Hill Park
South Hill Park has been a part of the community of Bracknell for over 40 years. In that time it has nurtured two generations of aspiring artists across a number of artistic disciplines, provided a safe haven for thousands of young people and become a vibrant community hub for local residents.
Every day we receive glowing feedback on the productions and activities taking place – so we thought we would collate some of it here and share it with you.
Below are testimonials from a whole range of people who have been touched by the work that South Hill Park carries out for, and with, our local community. Each and every one of these stories and anecdotes shows why our Arts Centre is such an important part of the Bracknell community.
We’d love to hear your story too. Please email your testimonial to email@example.com
I am always impressed at the quality of the venue at South Hill Park and the Wilde Theatre. As a disabled visitor, I find everywhere quite accessible and always come away with a feeling of great satisfaction with the activity or performance seen.
I am in awe with the courses and programmes South Hill Park runs for children and adults. It really is a hub of excellence. Although it’s not just what South Hill Park runs as it’s so much more than what you see in the brochure. It is the beautiful rose of Bracknell, it is a home from home to thousands of people. It is not just an “arty building” – it is a community, it is a place to let your imagination run wild and be supported, it is a family, with so many memories attached to it with the people of Bracknell.
I started my working theatre life at South Hill Park Arts Centre when I was 18. I worked front of house (Duty House Manager and Box Office Receptionist), enabling me to fall VERY quickly in love with the arts surrounding me on a day to day basis… I will always support the work the theatre and Arts Centre produces, from community to professional work. It’s not only a huge part of England’s arts landscape but a HUGE part of its community – people have watched the Arts Centre grow in its 40 years and just talking to the people in the Atrium Bar will show any ‘out of towner’ how much this venue means to a wealth of people.
The Arts Centre is such a wonderful asset for the borough – it would be a tragedy if it were to be damaged by further cuts. There is nothing comparable for many miles around.
