The Lease period will begin October 2012 and run for approximately 18 - 24 months. The space consists of an approximately 3,000 square foot banquet and dance hall with a commercial kitchen and is suitable for program, performance or rehearsal space.

Britannia is considering taking on the head lease and using the space for day time programming, however is seeking additional partners (sub-leases) who may be interested in using the space in evenings and weekends (with some potential for day-time use). The possibility of on-site office (for the sub-lease organizations) is limited but could be explored.

Pending the response to this call for expressions of interest, Britannia may or may not take on the head lease. This call is to assess initial viability with further information to be provided to short listed organizations, pending a decision to proceed.
