Curve to open

CurvedusksbcwebwideSlough’s flagship new library and cultural centre, The Curve, will open to the public on 2 September, say the council.

The £22million building will house a new central library, community learning rooms, the registrar services including a wedding room, a 280-seater performance and multi-use space, café and garden area.

The building will be opened with two days of activities for all the family in The Curve and along the High Street.

Joe Carter, assistant director assets, infrastructure and regeneration, said: “Despite the delays in building works and reconfiguring the building for different services, the final parts of the build are underway and we will be opening on 2 September.

“The Curve is transforming the centre of town and will be a trigger for further regeneration as well as providing improved services in a state of the art facility.”

Councillor Joginder Bal, commissioner for environment and leisure, said: “I am sure everyone can understand that a build of this size can hit some snags along the way, I am proud to be able to be there at the opening of this amazing facility.

“For years the centre of Slough has suffered from a lack of cultural activities and the library has suffered from an aging building and dated technology.

“Now there is a new site, bringing so much more than just a library or just a theatre, but a range of activities for all communities and all ages.”
