News: Theatres Trust respond to Chancellor’s Spending Review announcement

Theatres Trust director Jon Morgan has responded to the Chancellor’s Spending Review announcement today:

“With £100bn for capital investment and a £4bn Levelling Up fund in the Spending Review, Theatres Trust believes that investment should be made into the nation’s theatre buildings. Theatres can play a crucial role in the Build Back Better agenda, as vital creative and community hubs and as major contributors to local economies, in particular reviving beleaguered high streets. Our research has identified more than 80 theatre building improvement projects that are currently in development but are at risk due to Covid. These projects would provide new community facilities with improved access and environmental performance and would benefit from timely government investment, ensuring these assets continue to be fit for purpose in the 21st century and provide a much needed boost to local communities.”
