The Market Hall
Once refurbished the Market Hall will be a digital centre for arts, community activity, enterprise and visitors. With full plans submitted in March, the project is due to start on site towards the end off this year. The project is led by local social enterprise, RIO (the Real Ideas Organisation), in partnership with Plymouth City Council, the Institute of Digital Arts and Technology (i-DAT at Plymouth University), City College Plymouth, Devonport High School for Boys and seven of the brightest tech companies in the region.
In addition to providing office, lab and teaching space for the partners, the Market Hall will also offer space for events and meetings, a range of education programmes and a digital arts visitor centre.
The digital agenda in Plymouth is really gathering pace, so we are delighted to have signed the Funding Agreement with the Council which means this landmark project can take another important step forward. The Market Hall is the next big milestone in the regeneration of Devonport; capturing the community’s heritage of innovation, creating jobs and providing key support for a wide range of people and businesses.Lindsey Hall
