MALVERN Theatres has received £328,120 from the latest round of the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund.
The cash, part of more than 2,700 cultural and creative venues receiving £400million, has been announced today.
The venue delivers live performances, such as musical theatre, dance and comedy, film screenings and workshops.
The three-auditoria complex is also dedicated to training the next generation of theatre professionals, offering drama classes, trainee placements, and running its own celebrated Young Company.
Funding will see the reopening of the theatre with live performances, a classical music concert, an in-house drama production, as well as the cinema programme.
Secretary of State for Culture Oliver Dowden, said: “Our record-breaking Culture Recovery Fund has already helped thousands of culture and heritage organisations across the country survive the biggest crisis they’ve ever faced.
“Now we’re staying by their side as they prepare to welcome the public back through their doors – helping our cultural gems plan for reopening and thrive in the better times ahead.”
Peter Knott, Area Director, Arts Council England said: “We’re delighted the Culture Recovery Fund has been able to offer support to a wide range of arts and cultural sector organisations across Worcestershire.
“Now that we’re hopefully on the road to recovery, there is much to look forward to as organisations get ready to reopen their doors, welcoming back audiences and making plans for the future.”
Across Worcestershire, 39 organisations will receive a £2.8million.
