Sutton councillors are being asked to agree the grant of a 25 year lease to Cryer Arts for the Charles Cryer Centre in Carshalton.
The bid was one of three shortlisted and in a document which is to be presented to the strategy and resources committee of Sutton Council on October 29 the report from Gerald Almeroth, Strategic Director of Resources recommends that the Cryer Arts bid is accepted.
In identifying the Cryer Arts proposal as the one to choose the report outlines the key aspects of the plan.
“Cryer Arts Limited would use the premises as a bar and restaurant which would additionally have performance and gallery space with the theatre area used for performance, music, film and comedy. They would continue to work with Crunch Studios, look to reopen the scenery workshop and consider how to better use external areas. They have potential interest in a radio station based at the centre,” said the report.
“The Cryer Arts proposal relies to a large extent on projected income from the bar/restaurant. Further income would be derived from letting of performance spaces and the rear workshop area.”
