Within the physical constraints of the premises, we will seek to make the services of the Folk House available to as wide a range of people as is practically possible. If you have any questions - please do call us for more information. 0117 926 2987.
Accessibility Develop Plan
Accessibility is coming.
We have been working with an architect firm to redesign parts of the building to make it accessible throughout.
Planning permission has been submitted this year (Jan 2020) and we hope once this has been agreed, work can start this summer.
This will be a minimum of a 5-year project.
Stage 1 will be a new entrance area with an accessible toilet.
Stage 2 will be lifts and ramps to access the front entrance, classrooms and cafe.
Stages 3 and 4 will be access into the main hall and back entrance.
Please check back with us later this year for plans and drawings of the development work, as well as links to our fundraising pages.
