The EMD Cinema, Walthamstow

Inner Circle Consulting and London Borough of Waltham Forest


Submission Summary:

Creating a multi-functional theatre space has been not without risk, proven by several failed attempts. Our innovative approach to economic assessment, mitigating key risks and by securing a charitable operator for long term commitment we are addressing multiple deprivation in the borough, particularly in Hoe Street and extending Urban regeneration further North. Commissioned from October 2017 to-date; backed by cabinet, the site has been acquired and initial design options developed. 

This approach applied to future projects, will ensure that placemaking drives future developments, turning arts/cultural buildings like The EMD from a theoretical idea into a viable opportunity, enhancing the community.
