Our Ambition

What is Project Motorhouse?

Project MotorHouse is a transformative project designed to give Ramsgate facilities which it currently lacks. It will tackle one of the derelict buildings on Ramsgate’s seafront and turn it into the kind of sophisticated offering which Thanet District Council’s Destination Management Plan identifies as a key component for economic regeneration. When completed the building will be self-sustaining and incorporate three state of the art digital cinemas, a theatre, an outdoor theatre/cinema , a brasserie style restaurant and bar with a huge, sheltered south facing terrace overlooking the port and harbour, a gallery, a shop, a function room and serviced offices.




RESPONSE

Doing nothing is not an option, we need to act. The frame of the building is endangering the road, the West Cliff Promenade and the Viking Coastal Trail.

COMMUNITY

Project Motorhouse will turn a community liability into a community asset for all ages. The Thanet Destination Management Plan identifies the need, “to support, further develop and promote the contemporary cultural scene".

ENVIRONMENT

We believe it is important to be a part of East Kent's burgeoning green economy. Sustainable technology is the future and we want The MotorHouse to serve our town for another 100 years.

    A childhood treat…

    ”I grew up in Ramsgate and one of the treats of my childhood was to go to the West Cliff Hall to see the variety acts there, or there were dances there, and my Mum used to work in the ladies cloakroom there so I would get a little sneaky peak into the side of the stage and it was just a wonderful place to go. ”

    Those amazing people…

    ”I think it is really important that we provide avenues for young people to learn more about the world. I think sometimes for young people it’s hard to actually get experience of the world to actually begin to understand what is expected of them and to understand what the possibilities are and what can be achieved.”

    PETER CAPALDI, Actor

The project relies on our talented and committed trustees.
