The proposed performing arts centre to be constructed on the existing Central Coast Leagues Club (CCLC) site is a priority, says Belinda Suann, Business Development Manager at Central Coast Leagues Club.
The proposed concept received overwhelming community support at the Gosford Challenge Mid Term Review and well known performing artists, celebrities and business people have also lent their support.
Gosford Council is currently completing due diligence reports in the lead-up to sourcing funding for the project.
“The performing arts centre remains high on our agenda and we are working with Council towards making the concept a reality.
“In the meantime, the Central Coast Leagues Club is committed to supporting the performing arts, particularly through our entertainment program,” said Ms Suann.
The plans for the proposed performing arts centre incorporate a new home for the Central Coast Conservatorium, a 1000 seat theatre, a 1000 seat convention hall, a jazz club and a television recording studio.
The design also allows for indoor and outdoor dining facilities which are important in enhancing the event experience for guests.
The building designs have been based on a needs analysis report prepared by the Friends of Performing Arts Precinct (FoPAP) and much consultation with community members and experts in the areas of theatre design, sound engineering and convention management.
Designs for the façade of the building have evolved from practical to impressive, in line with feedback that an iconic building identifying a performing arts and cultural precinct beside Gosford’s waterfront needs to be the uncompromising outcome.
Ms Suann said the Central Coast Leagues Club is committed to making the site immediately available for the project.
