Battersea Arts Centre reopens Grand Hall 16.07.18

Battersea Arts Centre reopened its Grand Hall to some of the many people who supported them for the first time since a fire devastated the Grade II* listed building in south-west London in March 2015. To celebrate the event BAC arranged a commemorative photo with a message of defiance to both the fire and to President Donald Trump whose visit coincided with this milestone. The Grand Hall will reopen to the public in September with the five-month-long Phoenix season.
