Aims of the project
The use of Pocklington School facilities provides affordable facilities and a venue, for local clubs and societies to hold events for the local and wider community.
In Pocklington, there is a need for venues which can hold large scale events in the community and Pocklington School Sports Hall fulfills this need.
The Platform Festival is a high profile event in a unique venue, which brings tourism to the town and raises the profile of the local area. The whole community benefits from this.
The partnership between Pocklington School and the Arts Centre is also strengthened through this venture.
Background and goals
The partnership has been established for more than four years.
There is a financial contribution for using the Sports Hall.
