About the Renovation

Currently, the centre has been marginally improved to accommodate a small number of performing arts users, such as the River Valley Players, but does not begin to address the needs of our citizens, professional musicians and arts performing groups or the community in Drayton Valley and surrounding Brazeau County.

Located in downtown Drayton Valley, the renovated Eleanor Pickup Arts Centre will occupy both its current 5,000 square foot space, as well as an additional 5,000 square foot expansion to the south. The renovation of the centre will provide space for a wide range of activities including performing arts such as music, drama and dance, festivals, fundraisers, and municipal, church or organization meetings and gatherings. The historical context of the Cardium Theatre will be retained, as the façade is updated to create a true focal point in downtown Drayton Valley.

The renovated centre will see updates to its facilities,

access points, structural, mechanical and electrical

systems, and upgrades such as leading-edge

technology and enhanced guest and user services.

The total space of the expanded Centre will be

10,000 square feet. The adjacent 5,000 square foot

retail building to the south of the existing Centre has

been demolished and a new addition complete with

green room, dressing rooms, breezeway, washrooms,

storage, and more will be constructed in its place.

Concurrently, the existing 5,000 square foot theatre

will be renovated with an expanded stage, additional

seating, control room, new lobby and new entrance.
