The Sessions House CIC
Managing Director - current work
Spilsby's Sessions House is a grade II listed former courthouse and police station in Lincolnshire dating back to 1827. In 1984 it became Spilsby Theatre. The building is in a poor condition, and requires a full regeneration project to bring it back to life.
The Sessions House is a Community Interest Company
that aims to completely transform Spilsby Theatre; creating a sustainable future use for the important Heritage site by providing a unique venue and creative hub for artists, audiences and the community as a whole.
Bruce continues to play a central role in the long term project and has been instrumental in establishing the Sessions House organisation and bringing together a skilled, knowledgeable team. He has undertaken successful funding bids for the project and created a programme of community events keeping some parts of the building in use, raising funds at grass roots level whilst the core regeneration project develops.
The Sessions House completed a viability study for the project in 2017 funded by Heritage Lottery and the Architectural Heritage Fund. This established that the ideas for future use are viable and also costed the project at £3.5m. The project is continuing to progress into the next stages.
