Andrew Aldis had been in charge of the council owned venue since 2009 after previously working at a number of theatres in London’s West End.
In a statement, the council said: “The East Riding of Yorkshire Council implemented a process of restructure within its culture and customer services division,
which led to changes and regrading of posts including Mr Aldis’, which he found unacceptable.
“It is acknowledged that this was a source of unhappiness to him and regrettably resulted in an unresolvable dispute.
“Mr Aldis’ employment was terminated by the council in October 2019 and of course we regret any distress caused to Mr Aldis as a consequence.
“We recognise and pay tribute to his ten years’ commitment and dedicated service which has not only seen
Bridlington Spa raised to national significance but has also provided a springboard for young people wanting to work in the arts.
“We wish him the very best for the future.”
Mr Aldis said: “I would like to thank East Riding of Yorkshire Council for recognising my contribution and achievements at Bridlington Spa.
I always believed that the re-evaluation of my post was not right
“While I will always consider the council’s decision to be wrong, I simply cannot continue being angry. This last year has taken its toll and it is time to put the story to bed.”
