We aim to restore & promote the ‘Singers Links’ glass blocks (made with local children) and re-use this redundant but prominent building, to promote the towns’ artistic community and ethical local food. The existing disabled loo will be converted to a food kiosk & the four other cubicles into four micro-galleries. Loop de Loop Gallery will be curated and run by Creative Frome CIC. The project will run as a not-for-profit community project, with the Loop de Loop Kiosk offering local food by local food providers.
Loop de Loop Galleries
These will be available to hire on a monthly basis. Artists will create an installation which can be viewed through the reglazed door (with QR code links to further info). The building is overlooked by CCTV cameras and the police office. See details of the plan of the building & showcase sizes here. See a video here.
Loop de Loop Kiosk
Local food will be served, ideally aiming for a good mix of sandwiches, icecreams and cakes/pastries. Short term lets will be available to existing local food providers. There is potential for pop-up restaurant use and special guest Cafe events. The kiosk will have a sink, fridge (& freezer if space), power, handwash sink, counter and serving hatch. This will have A1 use class. Users will be responsible for all other equipment & leaving the kiosk clean & rubbish-free.
