Christmas comes early for Rothesay Pavilion as funding is secured
Argyll and Bute Council has marked the successful conclusion of a £14m fundraising drive to restore Rothesay Pavilion, enabling work to get underway to breathe new life back into the A-listed landmark.

This will allow the art deco landmark to be repurposed as a cultural and community hub; enabling the Pavilion top play host to a year-round programme of exhibitions. Other interventions include a revamped main hall to accommodate a range of events and performances together with a new shop and café.

Architects Elder & Cannon will also erect a new top floor to accommodate a mix of office space, meeting and function rooms.
Julia Twomlow, chief executive and artistic director of Rothesay Pavilion Charity commented: “Securing this additional funding is a marker of the architectural and historic importance of Rothesay Pavilion, which is recognised at a national level.”

The contract to commence restoration work will be awarded later in the autumn in the expectation of beginning work before Christmas. Rothesay Pavilion could then open its doors to the public in July 2019.

Great news and a big thank you to the fund raisers and funders. I am sure Elder and Cannon will do an excellent job for the building and the community.
