The Artistic Director of Fairfield Halls has quit six months after the Croydon arts centre reopened.
Neil Chandler told local councillors last week that it had been challenging to manage five cancelled re-opening dates for the venue following its £42.6m refurbishment.
The redevelopment, completed in September, was 15 months late and £12m over budget. An underground carpark and landscaping are yet to be completed.
It has recently been criticised by locals who feel the building doesn't look much different than it did before.
Ticket sales since the reopening have also been underwhelming at 26%.
Chandler's departure comes a week after Croydon was announced as London Borough of Culture for 2023.
