pledged of £56,297

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

CPPT will run this First Season in Summer 2019 for residents of Crystal Palace and South London - we will build theatre, cinema and art gallery space. With an amazing team including leaders in every arts sector and in consultation with Artistic Director David Fry, we are local individuals (not developers or corporations) who have a combined 500 years experience in the arts world. We aim to provide accessible, entertainment and cultural engagement for all ages and life stages. We have secured agreement in principle with local authority and park management to enable us to progress to this next stage. This crowd fund will enable us to work with experts in their fields in architecture, design and fundraising to shape and secure the First Season. With your support, we can also present this concept to the local community - allowing us to gain support from the five surrounding Boroughs.

What we'll deliver:

  • Feasibility report on proposed site
  • Employ fundraising experts specialising in arts and culture to maximise our fundraising potential
  • Community Launch Event to present design concepts and timeline
  • Designed concepts for an 850-1000 seated open air theatre, cinema and art gallery
  • A part-time basis Artistic Director to Programme the First Season

Why it's a great idea:

We will bring high calibre entertainment to South London over the Summer returning this historic landmark, with its 180 degree views, back to its historic location as the centre of entertainment before the Crystal Palace burnt down in 1936. This is a unique opportunity to deliver a bespoke cultural offering on the doorstep of this rich and diverse local community. We will have an outreach programme that will welcome local arts, sports, charities and schools to use this space. Join us at this foundation stage to be a leading member of one the most exciting NON-PROFIT, COMMUNITY FOCUSED developments the area has seen. Bringing you a brilliant range of entertainment from eye popping puppeteers, to serious Shakespeare or brand new musicals with something for all the family.

Steps to get it done:

  • to enable the wider fund raising to begin by employing a professional fund raiser
  • to enable the key personnel in the team to create the first season - namely the CEO, the Artistic Director, PR/Marketing
  • To enable the architects to run a feasibility report and move forward with the community meeting
