Centre 64 Unveiling Accessibility Lift in Kimberley Saturday

The home of the Kimberley Arts Centre is finally ready to open up the lift that will allow people of all walks of life to enjoy what they have to offer.

Kimberley Arts Council (KAC) VP Carol Fergus previously told Summit 107 that the lift, which will take people from the ground-level exterior to the theatre floor, will be a great way to get more people out to their shows and events.

She says many seniors and people with disabilities have had a tough time making their way up the top floor of the building to get to the theatre and have therefore been unable to attend.

The group held a series of successful campaigns in the last two years to raise money for this, surpassing their goal and reaching $200,000 as of March 2018.

The lift was installed over the second half of last year and the KAC is finally ready to open it up to the public. 

They will be holding a grand opening ceremony on Saturday, January 11th from 2:00 to 4:00 pm to let people come by and see it and everything else Centre 64 has to offer.
