Nottingham Playhouse have today announced that they are to receive a further grant from the Culture Recovery Fund via the Capital Kickstart programme. This will allow the venue to complete vital building works which were put on hold due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Stephanie Sirr, Chief Executive of Nottingham Playhouse, said: “We’re so thrilled that this grant means we can complete our upgrade to the Neville Studio. Following some uncertain months, our new studio theatre and completing our environmental upgrade will enable so much great art to happen at Nottingham Playhouse”.
Peter Knott, Midlands Area Director for Arts Council England, said: “We’re pleased to be investing in Nottingham Playhouse as they update the Neville Studio, theatre sound equipment, stage doors and seating, and look forward to seeing the theatre become a more accessible, comfortable and welcoming space.
Our Capital Grants programme provides organisations with vital funding to ensure they have the right buildings and equipment to help them become more sustainable and innovative places, as they deliver exciting work to the public. The Covid-19 pandemic has led to increasing costs and time delays to many projects, so we’re delighted to offer additional funding to make sure these projects are completed, re-opened and of benefit to all.”
