A refreshing daytime café and bistro will serve a fabulous selection of freshly made meals, snacks and treats. By night, a selection of street food-style options will be available for an informal meal pre-show.

Become a founding sponsor

The Council has commissioned 'A Wave of Thanks', a permanent and bespoke piece of wall art for the foyer. Individuals, community groups, organisations, clubs and businesses will have a rare opportunity to become part of the building's history by sponsoring their own small piece of this unique artwork.

A Wave of Thanks will be made up of coloured bars, which will be inscribed with the name of each sponsor. These engraved bars will be used to create a 'sound wave' design depicting both the audio and visual spectacle that Fareham Live will provide.
