Churchill Contract Services has been awarded a three-year contract with Performances Birmingham Ltd. Town Hall and Symphony Hall are managed together by Performances Birmingham, a registered charity. Between them, the two halls present a programme of around 800 concerts and events a year. Over 500,000 people visit Town Hall and Symphony Hall annually, and almost 12,000 young people and 6000 adults participate in the thriving Education and Community programme.
This is Churchill’s first contract with Performances Birmingham and includes general cleaning, window cleaning, washroom services, as well as other sanitary services across both buildings.
Nick Loveland, chief operating officer for Town Hall Symphony Hall, said: “Both venues are internationally renowned and it is important that with world-class reputations, Town Hall and Symphony Hall provide world-class experiences for audiences – cleanliness being of top priority. This is a really exciting time for Town Hall and Symphony Hall and the next few years will see a lot of change across the organisations. Churchill has impressed us with its innovation and proactive approach – I cannot think of a better cleaning partner over the coming years.”
Mark Whyte, operations director, Churchill - Midlands and North, said: “We’re delighted to kick off 2018 with a new partnership. Both buildings are integral to Birmingham’s history and identity, and we will collaborate with the team at Performances Birmingham to ensure that the facilities of these celebrated venues are kept up to the highest standards.”
