The owner of the Bratislava Culture and Leisure Park (PKO), Henbury Deveploment, s.r.o., is continuing work to repair the exterior and interior parts of the venue’s Vaudeville Hall which was damaged during short-lived demolition works on April 14.

Henbury’s crisis manager, Soňa Potheová, told the TASR newswire that the investor was thereby fulfilling a pledge given in return for the city council prolonging the validity of the company’s demolition permit, which was originally due to expire April 19, 2009. The city had asked the Construction Office of the Bratislava Old Town district to prolong the licence until the end of 2011; Old Town Mayor Andrej Petrek signed a new licence, valid until the end of 2011, on April 15.

PKO was built between 1940 and 1948. In 1975, steel pavilions were added. PKO is a famous venue for the Bratislava Jazz Days, balls, concerts, exhibitions, and university events. Henbury bought the site from the city in 2005 and started demolition work on the morning of April 14, 2009, but the work was halted after council intervention. TASR
