The Anvil Trust renews lease on The Anvil

Posted on

The Anvil Trust has just signed a twenty year lease on The Anvil building with Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council. This renews the original lease set up when The Anvil opened in 1994.

Andrew Finney, Chairman of The Anvil Trust, said: “We are delighted to have signed this new lease on The Anvil.  It’s hard to believe that The Anvil is twenty years old already – it doesn’t look it! 

Maintaining the buildings to a very high standard is an important part of our role as tenants, so that all our visitors feel welcomed and comfortable before they even see the performance. Most of the Borough Council’s investment in the Trust goes on keeping The Anvil and The Haymarket buildings up to scratch, and every £1 invested generates nearly £6 for the local economy, as well as helping to make Basingstoke a better place to live and work.

We look forward to working in partnership with the Borough Council to deliver another twenty years of service to the people of Basingstoke, Hampshire and beyond.”

The Anvil Trust is an independent educational charity which runs The Anvil, The Haymarket and The Forge.
