Beacon of Light sitting pretty with furniture partner
The Beacon of Light is delighted to announce that leading designer and manufacturer Godfrey Syrett will design, supply and install furniture at the new world class facility.
The partnership will see the North East based company help create an inspirational and vibrant environment within the five-storey building.
Due to open its doors to the public next month, the Beacon of Light will house a 4G football barn, capable of hosting 7-a-side and 5-a-side games, six outdoor 5-a-side pitches, a versatile indoor arena which can also host national sporting competitions, exhibitions and events, and a suite of classrooms, offices and informal learning spaces.
We are delighted to have partnered with a regional company who have a wealth of knowledge and experience and who really understood what the Beacon Light will achieve for our communities.
We are very excited to be opening the doors to this amazing facility within the coming weeks and can’t wait to see the Beacon of Light fully complete.
