The council is continuing with its plans, announced last year, to ensure that a thriving, state of the art theatre remains anchored at the very heart of Bromley Town Centre deep into the 21st Century.

A council spokesman said: “Whilst discussions remain ongoing with the theatre’s current operators Trafalgar Group, the council is also going out to market to invite additional expressions of interest, to secure the future of the theatre, in line with its statutory duty to obtain best value for Council Tax payers money, before reaching a final decision.”

This follows confirmation last year that the theatre, which was constructed in the 1970s and is now rapidly approaching the end of its life, needs to be replaced, providing the council with an exciting opportunity to secure a new and upgraded theatre, as well as enabling the relocation of Bromley’s Central Library to a more prominent location on the street at the vacant Top Shop premises slightly nearer to Market Square.

A council spokesperson continued “Our ambitions for Bromley Town centre remain undimmed, despite the well-publicised squeeze on local councils’ funding. There is still much work to be done and further news will follow when appropriate.” 

Information about forthcoming shows at the Churchill Theatre is available by visiting the Trafalgar Entertainment website.

Interested parties should contact the council’s retained agent Knight Frank.

Planning work to relocate Bromley Central Library, which is part of the Churchill Theatre building, to a new location in the High Street, in the former Top Shop building is continuing. This prime location in the centre of High St will be prominent and easy to find and increase footfall on the town’s main shopping street, which in turn will better support the local economy.
