The London Rd Studios is a creative project initiated by the
London Rd Collective who are all former art students of London Rd Art College. We are very grateful to Mid Cheshire College for this demonstration of their commitment to the ongoing development of artists in Northwich and for their generous help whilst we find a financially sustainable way to bring this iconic building back into use as a community arts facility.
More of our projects can be viewed on our website.
