Gardner Arts Centre to close
The Gardner Arts Centre on the Sussex University campus will close after the 2007 season because funding cuts no longer make it a viable concern.
The Arts Council and the City Council are concentrating funding on city centre venues which means that the Gardner will lose its annual Council £30,000 grant and additional funding from the Arts Council. This ends 36 years of continuous performances at the centre.
A future use for the Grade II listed building designed by Sir Basil Spence has not been determined yet.
