Theatres Trust responds to Arts Council England investment plans 15 – 18

1st July 2014

The Theatres Trust’s Director Mhora Samuel commented on the 65 capital awards totalling £71m announced today by Arts Council England. “We are delighted that ACE Capital Lottery recognises the important role theatres and arts centres play in sustaining our arts ecology. These grants will make a real difference to ensuring theatres meet the demands of today’s audiences and theatre makers. We are especially pleased that Theatre Hullabaloo has been supported to develop a new theatre for children and young people following the closure of Darlington Arts Centre, and that Cheshire West and Chester Council has been awarded funds for the new Chester Centre, replacing the former Chester Gateway. We are also pleased that over 77% of capital grants have gone to theatres and arts centres in the regions.”

Rebecca Morland, The Trust’s Theatres Adviser, said, ‘We’re delighted to see so many theatres amongst the recipients of both large scale and small scale awards. We are already working with some theatres on their schemes, and look forward to providing advice and support to many others as their projects develop.”

Speaking about the NPO awards, The Theatres Trust’s Director, Mhora Samuel said, “It is good to see revenue investment going into new initiatives such as Southampton’s new Performing Arts Centre, newly opened theatres such as the Doncaster CAST, and regional venues including the Hall for Cornwall and Hull Truck. It is also good to see funding return to the Northcott Theatre in Exeter and Derby Theatre. However with so many organisations responsible for theatres and arts centres having been cut, and many more not achieving NPO status, we will be assessing the impact on those theatres and looking to support them through our Theatres Advice Service. We are particularly concerned about smaller theatres and regional venues that are the only provision in their area, such as Bury St Edmunds Theatre Royal.”
