Theatre’s funding boost

A Derbyshire theatre has received funding from the Arts Council to produce a wide range of theatre.

Derby Theatre will receive in total £923,000 over the next three years for produced professional theatre, talent and skills development projects and wider community engagement.

The funding will ensure there will be produced professional theatre on the Derby Theatre stage, new relationships with associate artists and companies, connections with education and skills training in schools, colleges and the University of Derby, community engagement to enable a wide range of people to participate and a continuing relationship with the city’s amateur theatre community.
