Chance to name arts venue

People are being asked to choose a name for Fareham’s new community arts and entertainment venue which is being developed on the site of Ferneham Hall.


Four names for the new venue have been put forward and the public is being asked to vote for their favourite from: (a) The Kiln, Fareham; (b) The Quay, Fareham; (c) The Tannery, Fareham; or (d) Fareham Live.


The Kiln and The Tannery reflect the industrial heritage of Fareham. In the late 17th Century Fareham had become well known for its tanning industry and by the 19th Century brickmaking was flourishing — Fareham Reds were used to build the Royal Albert Hall in 1871.


Fareham Quay has also been prominent over the centuries as a port for exporting bricks and pottery and importing wine, cloth and coal.


Fareham Live has been put forward to reflect the live performances that will be taking place in the new venue when it is complete.


The name Ferneham will not be completely lost and is likely to be used when rooms and areas are named in the remodelled venue.


To vote, see fareham.gov.uk or text A, B, C or D to 07876 131415 (standard messaging rates apply). Alternatively, call 01329 236100.


Voting closes on 13th September, and the new name will be announced in October.
