Hoylake Beacon Arts Village is an ambitious and community focussed scheme situated in the old Victorian town hall. It will include a two-screen cinema, restaurant, all-day/evening Levantine cafe, a bar and 16 artisan workshops/studio spaces for a variety of makers and artists.

The development led by Hylgar Properties aims to bring jobs, nurture creative enterprise and attract visitors to Hoylake in a flagship scheme. Funded by Coastal Communities Fund which is designed to help seaside places flourish and strengthen their appeal as places to live, work and visit.

It means that this development is by local people for local people. The team is made up of people who live in and around Hoylake and the surrounding areas. Over four years the project has undergone several rounds of community consultation and drew in over 6000 responses and comments and held community meetings to ask what people thought of the scheme.

From that consultation, several objectives were identified, including the need for more visitors to the town and more for those visitors to do. It was also clear that there was a need for jobs in the town, the need to provide training and to nurture local skills.

This led to the project revolving around the successful Hoylake Community Cinema and its evolution into a fully functioning two-screen state-of-the-art auditoria. It was then decided that if Hoylake high street was to be successfully reinvigorated we would need to add other hospitality offerings to satisfy the needs of the visitors, but more importantly to complement the existing businesses in the area. Bringing Beacon footfall to existing and emerging businesses was always a priority in our planning.
