Café/bar

At the last Project Board meeting it was agreed that the café/bar should be managed and run by an external organisation/individual. Invitations to express an interest will be released within the next 1 or 2 months.

Time Capsule

Prestatyn Town Council came up with the ingenious idea of placing a time capsule in the Scala. Meetings were arranged with all the schools in Prestatyn to invite and discuss ideas regarding the contents – it was suggested that pictures/photos/paintings depicting film and/or theatre in Prestatyn would be the most appropriate.

Visioning Event

An event to determine the ethos, focus and direction of the Scala will take place in January or February of next year (2008). Further details will be provided.

Directors

An informal information session will take place in La Freccia Ffrith Beach on the 5th of December for those who applied to be directors. This will give prospective directors an overview of their responsibilities and further detail regarding the Scala and its future. Following this event, interviews will take place on the 11th of December.
