A longlist of five formal bids has been selected to bring the Charles Cryer Theatre complex in Carshalton back into use.
More than ten bids were submitted and the longlist is drawn from bidders who are offering to lease all the buildings on the site and meet Sutton Council’s rent expectations.
Bids will be assessed by council officers and a shortlist decided by the end of August based on the viability and sustainability of the proposals.

Feedback on the bids will also be given by representatives of Arts Network Sutton, an independent charity, as well as community representatives on the Carshalton and Clockhouse local committee. A stakeholder panel of citizens and young commissioners will also be asked to give feedback on the bids. They will assess how closely the bids meet the brief to benefit the wider community and maintain a venue for cultural activity in the borough.
A recommendation will be made by officers to the council’s Strategy and Resources committee with a final decision to be announced on 29 October.
