Press Release

28 October 2022

New operator sought for Fareham Live

Fareham Borough Council is looking for a new operator for its new community arts and entertainment venue, Fareham Live.

BH Live will no longer be the operator of Fareham Live as contract terms could not be agreed. During the COVID-19 pandemic all leisure and event venues were affected and suffered significant loss of revenue. Those operated by BH Live were no exception and, as a result, BH Live wants to focus on its existing venues, rather than expanding into new ones.

This will not affect the remodelling work already underway at Fareham Live, which is a milestone project that will kickstart new investment in the Fareham town centre. Consequently, the Council will reopen the tender process for a new operator without delay. 

Executive Member for Leisure and Community, Cllr Sue Walker, said: “While disappointed in this outcome regarding Fareham Live, I understand the impact of the Covid 19 pandemic on BH Live and its desire to focus on its existing sites.  Having agreed to go our separate ways, a new tender opportunity will be launched as soon as possible, which will enable the Council to seek bids from alternative operators, now that there is actual evidence that people are only too keen to return to theatre venues.  I am sure that this exciting opportunity, will be hotly contested.”
