    Problems at the top ?

  2. Arthur Thistlewood says:

    I wonder how long the lease agreement lasts and when there will be a process of open competition for the control of the facility?

  3. Andrew White says:

    I love the Pier Pavilion, and think the volunteers there do a brilliant job. Lots of excellent films, exhibitions, great children’s fun days last week.

  4. Arthur Thistlewood says:

    Yes, it’s excellent but it has some fundamental problems that must make it hard to manage profitably (which if needs to do if it is to remain in operation at all) … too much non-revenue producing space and those spaces producing revenue like the cinema are too small! Still, by the time 125 years have elapsed, I’m sure they will have sorted it out.
