Upgrades to The Briggait- Coming Soon!

After a major funding boost, we’re looking forward to some big improvements in the backspace of the briggait, transforming it to a hub for Circus, Theatre and Dance.

The winter weather is making its presence known again in the Briggait this year, so you’ll see us in the space doing some repairs to keep the drips away from your classes.


While we’re working on that, we thought you’d like to get an idea of some of the major upgrades that will be happening to the Briggait starting next year.


For several years there have been efforts to raise the necessary funds to repair the roof and to turn the backspace into “The Briggait Creation Centre” Wasps, the organisation that runs the Briggait has so far secured £2 million pounds of funding towards this goal with the aim of raising the rest by summer next year.


There are now plans in place to transform the Briggait into a facility where people can create work, train and take part in dance, circus, street arts and physical theatre.


The reconstruction work should begin next summer and will include repairs to the roof, the levelling of the floor and the addition of under floor heating. There will be additional improvements for aerial work and the creation of some new dance studios.
