Retaining the original vision as imagined by architect Phillip Hepworth, the new fountain is formed around a central plinth with a feature central jet, but also has an additional 144 individual jets which can be programmed to dance to music. Multi-coloured lights illuminating the water jets add to the visual impact and bring the space to life.
The fountain has been designed to create a reflection pool where kids can enjoy splashing about through the summer months. A recirculating water system will reduce water consumption. The fountain will be on several times throughout the day, but this will depend on the season and day of the week.
Current fountain schedule
We want everyone to enjoy the fountain at the heart of Fellowship Square and hope to create a welcoming, safe and fun space for our residents and visitors!
The fountain will be on between 9am – 7pm and will feature a range of jets, lights and music throughout the day. We aim to ensure that the fountain is on regularly every hour, so if you are just popping in to enjoy a coffee or are here for an event then you will be able to enjoy a show!
There are a few circumstances where we may have to delay a fountain performance or temporarily turn it off to help keep everyone safe and the fountain running well. These include:
Events which may mean we have a special schedule in place
If we become too busy to make it a safe experience for everyone!
We will always post on social media if this happens, or you can check the chalkboards on the square for the latest updates.
Fellowship Square is a space for you
A few things to bear in mind during a visit to the Fellowship Fountain:
Please keep your dogs on a short lead and out of the water
We ask that everyone enjoying the fountain wears either clothes, swimming costumes or swim nappies
Children remain the responsibility of the parent, carer or guardian at all times
Please keep cycles, skateboards and scooters away from the fountain
Play joyfully in the fountain, relax in the Square, enjoy the moment and help us keep it a safe and clean space for everyone.
It's great to see so many people enjoying Fellowship Square and we look forward to seeing you all throughout our summer cultural programme.
