Rye Creative Centre (formerly known as “The School Creative Centre”),
2009 – 2014
Working closely with local Councillors in Rye, Rother and East Sussex and with Rye College, B&R Productions developed plans to continue the life of Freda Gardham School when it was de-commissioned in 2008. This resulted in the generation of a centre of creative excellence with over 30 studio spaces, a theatre, gallery, workshop and print room alongside working with voluntary, statutory and third sector agencies to derive a mixed economy and provide a unique resource for artists and the people of Rye. After launching The School Creative Centre in 2009 and developing it into a vibrant and sustainable creative organisation, B&R Productions handed over the lease of the building to ARRCC in 2014.
