Community Survey

The Generator Loughborough is an exciting project to restore and reuse the building that was previously the town’s College of Art and Design on Frederick Street. To create workspaces for local creative businesses, a cafe and a new multi-media arts venue for live performances, exhibitions, events and community activities.

The project is being managed by The Generator Loughborough, a Community Interest Company working to secure funding to restore the building & its future activities. On behalf of the CIC, Bright Culture is undertaking consultation to find out how the local community would like to engage with the space in the future and the types of activities and events you would be most interested in.

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and can be anonymous. As a thank you for your time, you can enter a prize draw to win a £100 Love2Shop eGift Card, which can be used at many popular shops and restaurants. A winner will be chosen at random once the survey closes on Friday 26th March.

Survey data is being managed by Bright Culture and no personal contact data collected for the purposes of administrating the prize draw will be shared or stored.  If you have any queries about the survey please contact Catherine Bloodworth,
