Yesterday the UK government announced an investment plan to protect the UK's world-class cultural, arts and heritage sectors. 

This is a huge show of support for our sector and we are grateful to Oliver Dowden, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, and the Treasury ​for investing in us. 

Thank you to all our staff, freelancers, supporters and the whole theatre community who lobbied hard over the last few months to make our case heard.

We look forward to working with the DCMS on the details of how this investment will be distributed and how it c​an quickly reach those most in need.

This is a big step forward and we hope it will be the lifeline we and many other companies, artists and freelancers need. There is a long road ahead and still many challenges to overcome in the coming months as we move to reopen our doors. But this has given us huge hope for the future.
