News: Theatres Trust responds to latest round of Cultural Recovery Fund

Theatres Trust director Jon Morgan has responded to the newest round of Cultural Recovery Funding:

“Theatres Trust is pleased to see further support for theatres in England in the latest round of the Culture Recovery Fund. Theatres have had to remain closed for far longer than anyone could have anticipated so quite rightly, there are theatre organisations receiving additional grants in recognition of that. 

Before the pandemic hit, theatres played an important role in communities everywhere. More than 34 million people attend theatres in the UK each year, generating £1.28bn in ticket revenue. It is crucial to the social, cultural and economic wellbeing of the country that our theatres survive this crisis and can contribute to its recovery. It is therefore important that theatres continue to receive support until they can reopen viably.”
