Arts centre unable to operate under Tier 3 restrictions
The Watermans Arts Centre in Brentford has announced that it is to close until further notice due to the London Tier 3 restrictions.
This means its planned Christmas show with Morgan and West is cancelled and its planned programme of films will not be shown.
The staff have wished everyone a very Merry Christmas and they hope to see you back in the new year.
The unexpected closure makes the #SaveWatermans Emergency Appeal even more critical.
A spokesperson for Watermans said, “As you can imagine with a third closure, it is more important than ever for you to show your support for the venue. Thanks to everyone who donated so far we reached our first target of £60,000 which is incredible but for us to be able to operate fully throughout next year, we need to raise £120,000 that will be a game changer. “

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.
Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.
We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.
However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.
We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.
A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.
One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.
If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.
For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
