Dear Jerry,

Mmmm, food for thought here. Innovative ideas are essential to capture the 
imagination - and this one is great!!  Daylight is an essential requirement 
for many artistic activities, so opening up the internal space of the four 
drums in such a way would significantly increase the range of possibile uses 
of the NCPM as a public centre for cultural and creative activity.

Pride in Sheffield hopes such an idea can be implemented in the future.

Keep 'em coming!!

Gareth Roberts.
