Members of the public are being invited to attend an open day at Rothesay Pavilion this weekend, to meet those working to improve the iconic building, with the chance to see behind the scenes in areas not usually open to the public.
The Pavilion was last opened up in this way to the public in September 2010, as part of a Doors Open Day campaign, which was attended by around 75 people, and included a venture out onto the building’s balcony which is usually off limits.
Saturday’s open day, which starts at 2pm, will also provide visitors the opportunity to meet members of the project team and the charity’s board.
The Pavilion project team is currently working towards an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund for ‘stage two’ grant assistance of £2.6 million, due to be submitted in October.
Applications are also being drawn up to several other funding sources which, if successful, will add a further £5.38 million to the project.
