About The Pump House Project
The Pump House Project in Faringdon is a unique, stand-alone charity that is based in a refurbished theatre in the heart of the town centre. Established since 2013, we have become a hub to an ever growing population in Faringdon. We are a completely self-funding organisation which is recognised and supported by businesses and individuals alike.
The Project aims to continuously create a versatile and vibrant, multi-purpose activity centre for the town and its surrounding area. It is an all year round facility, which endeavours to engage with groups and individuals from all sectors of the community with relevant, affordable and inclusive access.
An average of 500 people use the facility every week, hosting local children’s groups, an all-ages weekly community café, baby and toddler sessions, urban movement classes, singing, yoga, tai chi, exercise classes for the over sixties, a dementia café and many more. We work in conjunction with a variety of local and national agencies including The Scouts Association, Sovereign Homes, Age UK and the Town Council’s Youth Services to organise a variety of initiatives including a ‘Digihub’ that opened in June 2017.
