Bovey Paradiso

Welcome to Bovey Paradiso

Together we can create a lively community cinema, theatre, arts, and entertainment centre in Bovey Tracey. The King of Prussia Arts Centre will give a new lease of life to this 16th century building, offering an art gallery and four artists' studios, a cinema and theatre with almost 100 seats, a café bar and a high-quality restaurant. This January you can help make this happen.

A chance to own a little slice of Paradiso

Our second share offer remains open for a few more months.  We need to raise at least £400,000 to get the cinema, theatre and restaurant built and finished. Now is your chance to become a Member with community shares and help us make this happen. 

Huge thanks go to our existing community shareholders, donors and volunteers for giving their time to make this project possible. Now, there is another chance for even more people in Bovey Tracey, Heathfield and neighbouring villages to help out and be part of this bright future for our community.
