“This is a great step forward in the transformation of Ferneham Hall. BH Live will bring a wealth of operating experience and we’re looking forward to working together to establish the new venue as a vibrant community facility with activity throughout the day and evening, offering something for everyone.”


Chris Symons, Chief Executive at BH Live, said: 

“We are delighted to be working with the Council on plans that will see Ferneham Hall transformed into a thriving community arts and entertainment venue.

We share the Council’s ambition - to provide a sustainable cultural venue with a broad event and activity programme that is high quality and community-focussed. Local residents can expect the programme to include theatre, music, visual arts, international performances, comedy, heritage, health and wellbeing, exhibitions, festivals, dance and creative projects for young people.”
