Golden Tree Productions are seeking funding, through the Towns Vitality Fund, to explore possible sites for a new National Plen an Gwari for Cornwall in the Redruth area.
A plen an gwari is a medieval ‘playing place’: a landscaped amphitheatre serving as a gathering place for entertainment and drama, as well as a green ‘every day ‘ community space. Golden Tree Productions are experts on the plen an gwari but will need expert guidance on the associated infrastructure, critical to establish the size of the site required and assess suitability.
This stage of the project is to identify potential sites, evaluate the options and progress a feasibility for the preferred site. The outcome of the tender will be to appoint a company with the necessary architectural and landscape skills to act as Lead Design Consultant.
Crossley Hill Chartered Surveyors will be managing this tender process, to request the full tender brief please email [email protected]
Tender return deadline: 23rd October 2021
