North Devon Theatres confirm grant award from DCMS

North Devon Theatres

Following today’s announcement from the DCMS Selladoor has confirmed they will receive a grant award as one 1300 organisations to be supported financially as part of the Cultural Support Package.

David Hutchinson CEO of Selladoor says “We are delighted and very grateful to receive support from the Government’s Cultural Recovery Fund. The last 7 months have been nothing short of devastating, both for our company and our industry as a whole.  We have lost 8 productions, as well as many of our team members, as we have tried to sustain a business with zero income. This financial lifeline allows us time to reimagine and restructure the business, so that we can be ready and able to help bring our sector back to life post Covid-19.  

There is a long way to go, but this grant gives our company a fighting chance of recovery.  In turn, we fully intend to do everything that we can to support our venue partners, fellow organisations and all of fantastic professionals who work in our industry, so that can all move forward in our joint journey towards getting the arts back in business”
