Local theatre goers will be pleased to hear this news from Cheshire East:
Bids come forward to secure the future of Lyceum Theatre
Four bidders have come forward with a view to helping secure the future of Crewe's historic Lyceum Theatre.
Cheshire East Council invited interested parties to express an interest in partnering the Council in the future management of the century-old institution.
The response was excellent and the Council received 58 expressions of interest from potential partners and this has now led to four formal bids for the contract.
Cheshire East Council is not looking to sell the Lyceum Theatre; it is seeking a suitably qualified and experienced partner to work with them in managing this landmark asset.
Adverts were placed in local media and appropriate trade publications that gave details about how to tender for the management of the historic facility.
The next step in the process is for the Cabinet to decide today, on April 2nd, whether to formally proceed with the invitation to tender stage. The aim of this process is to arrive at a preferred bidder by the autumn, who will work in partnership with the Council.
