Following the merger of University College Falmouth and Dartington College of Arts a Performance Centre was built to accommodate additional students and provide facilities for further courses at the Tremough Campus in Penryn.
The bulk of the investment has been used to provide new, specialist buildings including multi-purpose studios and performance venues for theatre, choreography and music.
On 22 May 2009 the foundation stone was laid and the building is was opened in October 2010 accommodating a wide range of courses including Creative Music Technology, Dance Performance and Theatre Design & Production.
“UCF is committed to the development of a creative and connected Cornwall, and is exploring numerous ways of supporting and growing business and stimulating employment opportunities in the region,” added Professor Carlisle. “As well as providing outstanding resources for teaching and learning, these stunning facilities are also available for hire at multiple rates, for a wide range of uses from community initiatives to corporate events.”
