Uncertain future for Waterman’s arts centre in Brentford

There are concerns that the Waterman’s arts centre in Brentford may be relocated as part of a major redevelopment plan for the area. We received this email about these concerns:

‘I would like to alert your members to the uncertain future of Waterman’s in Brentford.   I think several of your members travel to this wonderful, if somewhat austere,  cinema, theatre, bar & restaurant to meet friends and enjoy the films.   Mothers and babies also have special showings as well as other events.   It is a much loved venue amongst people from Ealing, Acton, Brentford, Chiswick, Kew & Richmond and would be a great loss should it move away or be closed down.

The London Borough of Hounslow own the valuable Waterman’s site which they wish to sell off to deveopers.    Watermans would be moved to another site – the council are not being very clear about their exact plans – some think they want to move it to Hounslow which would spell its death knell.


Watermans   Brentford development plans on view to public for 3   days this week, 19th 20th & 21st at St Peter’s (behind Morrisons)
