Now that the gallery has finally opened the WMTPA will be keeping an eye on the progress of this £67m project.


So no prizes for guessing which newly opened arts centre this unnamed employee works for:

There is nothing at all on the second floor, it is an empty shell. The fourth floor is not much better, the “pod” offices that have been created are still empty and because of the way the building is designed you can hear everything going on throughout the building.
“It is so noisy, you would find it difficult to run a business from there.”


So not only have we all been ripped off, it seems we’ve been somewhat misled too.


The comments of Express & Star readers say it all really…
