Kazimier officials reassure public that garden is safe after sale of Liverpool Academy of Arts.
Organisers behind the Kazimier have issued a statement reassuring people over the future of their Garden and performance space.
Fears were raised yesterday when reports suggested the future of the Kazimier Garden was in doubt following the sale and proposed redevelopment of the Liverpool Academy of Arts.
New owner Wavertree-based TJ Thomas Estates Group has bought properties on Seel Street and Wolstenholme Square to develop into bars, restaurants and student flats.
June Lornie, Liverpool Academy of Arts director, has been told she has six months to vacate the gallery before its demolition.
TJ Thomas Estates has also bought the original Liverpool Academy of Arts building at 36 Seel Street, where tenants include The Actors Studio, as well as 11-23 Seel Street opposite and a warehouse on Wolstenholme Square next to Cream, which includes the Kazimier Garden.
The Kazimier issued this statement today via their Facebook page: “Thank you for your messages of concern regarding the prospective closing of the Kazimier Garden, we are relieved to let you know that although the properties around us face change and re-development, the Garden is staying put with our future secure.”
