We are really proud to be working with about 80 art students from Aylsham High School, who will be producing posters and artwork for the Aylsham Film & Arts Centre as part of their final GCSE exam in a few weeks time.
Yesterday Isabel and Jason presented the vision of the Aylsham Film & Arts Centre to the students, who will now have 5 weeks to develop their ideas before producing a piece of work in 10 hours.
A big thank you to Mrs Homewood, the Head of Art at Aylsham High School, for setting up this project. We are really excited about what the students will produce and it’s fabulous to already be connecting our project with the community in such a positive way.
We hope to arrange a visit to the Old Baptist Church with the students, so they can see the space and find further inspiration for their exam pieces.

Our bid has been chosen as the preferred bid by the East Midland Baptist Trust Company Limited and their agents Arnolds Keys, so now its all about paperwork rather than competition.
We aren’t shouting from the rooftops just yet, as there are the legals to sort, searches and surveys to carry out, contracts to sign and of course money to be paid. We’ve taken a huge step in the right direction, but any lawyer would rightly point out, it’s all Subject to Contract.
The committee will be working hard over the next few weeks to piece together the costings, the fundraising plan and we’ll be in touch to tell you more very soon. If you know of professionals or tradesmen who might help us then please put them in touch.
In the meantime, please keep inviting your friends to like us on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. Please continue to tell us your hopes for the place and generally keep being excited about this amazing community opportunity.
