Brewhouse administrators look to sell the lease

BDO LLP business restructuring partners Simon Girling and Graham Randall have been appointed joint administrators of The Brewhouse Theatre and Arts Centre.

The business has stopped trading and all 48 employees have been made redundant before they were appointed.

As administrators, our first step will be to investigate any and all options which would allow theatre to continue at the Brewhouse in the immediate future. This could potentially involve granting a license to a third party or a community organisation to operate the Brewhouse for a specified period.

“BDO, with Savills, will also immediately commence the search for a purchaser for the Brewhouse lease in order to secure the long term future of the theatre.

– Simon Girling, BDO
