Alexandra Palace is seeking local residents’ feedback on what events, activities, projects and workshops they would like to see happen at the People’s Palace.

These activities will make up a major element of the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) supported restoration project which will open the Palace’s most historic spaces to the public once again.

Duncan Wilson, Chief Executive for Alexandra Palace said: “We are at an exciting stage of the HLF project. The initial designs are now emerging and we can now begin to consult with our local community to find out the range of activities people would like to see happening here.

“The new opportunities that can be offered in the Victorian theatre and in the historic BBC studios – the birthplace of broadcast television – will be truly extraordinary.”

The survey, which can be accessed online here: lists a variety of potential activities ranging from workshops and learning activities to special interest events and opportunities for apprenticeships and volunteering.

He continued: “This phase of consultation gives our local community the opportunity to help shape the future of the People’s Palace and we hope to hear from as many residents from across the Borough as possible.”

To thank people for taking the time to fill out the survey, Alexandra Palace will enter everyone who responds in a prize draw for free event tickets.

These complimentary tickets will be valid for any event at Alexandra Palace until September 2015.
