19/11/2021 Leeds Heritage Theatres awarded funding from Cultural Recovery Fund

Leeds Heritage Theatres has been awarded vital funding in the third round of the government’s Cultural Recovery Fund.

Chris Blythe, Chief Executive Officer of Leeds Heritage Theatres, said:

“Leeds Heritage Theatres is hugely grateful to receive ongoing support through the Culture Recovery Fund as we continue to rebuild our audiences whilst also finding new ways to adapt and grow in response to major industry and social changes which have come about as a result of the pandemic.

Throughout our closure, we have been reflecting on our organisation and its role in the Leeds City Region which we are so proud to serve. The support of DCMS and the Arts Council have made it possible for us to begin to develop plans exploring how we can better reflect the city around us through our workforce, our audiences and the spectrum of work we help share both in and outside of our spaces.

This grant will help us continue to work towards our ambitions to ensure our beautiful heritage venues remain relevant and sustainable for future generations.”
