Transforming Cecil Sharp House

Cecil Sharp House building project update from Rosie Baker, Operations Director at the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS).

It’s been a month since our building work started to make Cecil Sharp House more accessible and luckily we haven’t been driven crazy yet by noise and dust. (But it’s probably no coincidence that some of our team are taking holiday at the moment!)

There are now holes in walls and a pit has been dug deep to allow for the new lift, which will be completed sometime in October. Having been ripped from the basement and ground floors, we now have an array of clay, bricks, toilets and sinks sitting in the builder’s compound on Gloucester Avenue Gate. It’s fascinating to see the skeleton of the building and how it all fits together beneath the foundations.
