Surrey Performing Arts Library

The Surrey County Council has commenced a consultation over the future of the Surrey Performing Arts Library with a view to making savings of £180,000. In launching the consultation, the Surrey County Council has given residents just two weeks to respond with their views.

The Library, which is currently based near Dorking at Denbies Wine Estate, houses a truly unique collection of music, theatre, orchestral and dance materials available for public loan. It also holds a specialist Vaughan Williams collection, a permanent display which covers the life and works of Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958) and which commemorates his strong links with the area where he lived and where he composed some of his most important pieces.

The Surrey Performing Arts Library is a great asset to our County and that its impact is immense: it not only benefits the many groups that use play scripts and musical scores to perform plays and orchestral works, but also benefits the audiences who enjoy the performances. Overall, It is an important part of Surrey’s musical and artistic heritage and, if we were to lose such a specialist service alongside the many dedicated and knowledgeable staff, it would be an act of great folly.

If you value the Surrey Performing Arts Library please sign the petition and respond to the County Council’s consultation now, and then pass on the links to friends and neighbours and ask them to do the same. Alternatively, you might like to contact your SCC councillors and voice your opposition to any changes.

The link to the petition is here:  https://signme.org.uk/1392

The consultation can be found here – the deadline to respond is Sunday 17th September:
