Weston College has transformed the Winter Gardens into a Law and Professional Services Academy as part of their University Centre Weston. The project generated £15m of investment from the Local Enterprise Partnership for the refurbishment work.
The development offers new learning opportunities and career paths for local people. It will also attract new students and create 35 new jobs in the town centre.
The improvements also involved restoring the iconic ballroom, which will continue to be available for community use.
