The cafe at Theatre Porto has been welcomed by the community as a great new asset to Whitby Park. It provides a wonderful space to meet, eat, and be inspired by creativity. It contributes to making Ellesmere Port a great place to live and supports children and families to discover and access high quality art and culture. Much of it free of charge or subsidised so that those who face financial challenges don't miss out. Our community has told us that they would like to see the following additions 1) Outdoor canopies and heating so that dog walkers can be more comfortable and outdoor events/play can take place whatever the weather 2) More greenery - large plants, shrubs etc around the buildings perimeter 3) Our visitors love it when our artists and arts-based resources are available in the cafe to support children to take part in creative play whilst mum/dad/carer enjoy a coffee Our capital budget has run out so we need to raise more money to make these improvements for the community.
