Komedia are opening their doors
Register to become a co-owner of Bath’s best live entertainment venue below.
In October, Komedia are opening their doors to the community and you can become a co-owner of Bath’s best loved venue.
The national plight of mid-scale venues repeatedly makes the news and relentless closures mean we are losing the performance platforms that add culture and opportunity to our cities and towns.
Faced with similar issues, and the desire from one of three Komedia Bath shareholders to step back, we are at a crossroads. Either we carry on as we are, fighting to keep our audience engagement, whilst having to increase ticket prices to cover high costs and overheads, or we take a new path.
At the start of the year the current owners conducted an in-depth analysis of Komedia and reached an important conclusion: Komedia cannot continue to support the arts and keep our diverse programme of events without radically changing the way we are perceived, used and managed. Although immensely proud of what we’ve achieved since our doors opened nearly ten years ago, we identified some crucial steps; a new management structure, including a dynamic new venue manager with greater autonomy to build his own team, including new roles within this structure, focusing on development and tasked with building permanence in the city and a better entertainment offer for all.
And finally, the most important step of all - you, the community; imagine a venue owned by the people, for the people offering sustainability, accessibility and permanence that will continue to add value to Bath and the surrounding area.
