Earlier this year Farnham Maltings embarked upon a new phase of building redevelopment. The courtyard gates were replaced with an ironwork set created by Oliver Russell, the Great Hall was refurbished and new technical equipment was installed. Concluding this regenerative series of work, Farnham Maltings has now replaced a section of the roof which covers the Tindle Studio.

These improvements are designed to benefit the thousands of visitors, performers and artists who attend the Maltings each year for events, workshops, festivals, conferences, wedding receptions and classes.

The ongoing developments ensure Farnham Maltings remains accessible to the entire community. The buildings hold historical and sentimental importance and contribute to the character of Farnham and, as such, it is important to constantly use and improve them as best as possible.

Work began on the Tindle Studio roof around the end of May and was recently finalised.

The Tindle Studio was revived in October 2005 as a new hall for Farnham, made possible through the support and encouragement of partners which included Waverly Borough Council, Farnham Town Council, Onyx Environmental Trust, Margaret Wenham and Sir Ray Tindle, who the space was named after. Since then the space has been used for conferences, festivals and as a home for new theatre, which is often produced or commissioned by the Maltings.

Just as the preceding stages of the ongoing redevelopment were thanks to the Ironmongers’ Company and other individual donations, this regeneration of the Tindle Studio roof has been made possible thanks to SITA Trust and the ongoing support of Waverley Borough Council.

SITA Trust is an independent funding body who provide backing from the Landfill Communities Fund. They have supported more than 2900 projects in the past to a combined value of over £78 million. Their goal is to enhance communities in England, Scotland and Wales by supporting community-driven projects to improve public recreation facilities.

Farnham Maltings is blessed with a beautiful and historical building which they will continue to improve and utilise over the coming months.
