Nottingham Playhouse receives £320,000 grant from Culture Recovery Fund

Nottingham Playhouse has received a grant of £319,238 from the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund to help the organisation recover and reopen.

More than £300 million has been awarded to thousands of cultural organisations across the country in the latest round of support from the Fund.

Support from the Fund will allow Nottingham Playhouse to fully reopen for productions, to support local creatives and freelancers, and to welcome its community back either in person or on-line to enjoy its vital participation activity.

Stephanie Sirr, Chief Executive at Nottingham Playhouse, said: “We are very grateful to have received £319,238 from Arts Council England to reopen.

“We have already made plans to keep producing new work and hire local and national creative artists through our Spring Loaded season of live and digital events.

“We also cannot wait to welcome audiences back to the theatre for Adam Penford’s long-awaited Piaf in July. Nottingham Playhouse earns over 70% of its income in normal times and this has been the most difficult 12 months in our 70 year history.

“However, it is now an exciting and promising time and we thank ACE as well as the kind generosity of audiences, donors, funders and sponsors for saving us.”
