Hyde theatre receives £20K funding boost from the People's Postcode Lottery

Hyde Festival Theatre has been awarded a significant grant of £20,000 from the People’s Postcode Lottery.

The funding will be used to expand the theatre's facilities. 

Daniel Oliver-Grant, chairman of Hyde Festival Theatre, said: "We are thrilled to receive this generous grant from the People’s Postcode Lottery, which will allow us to further enhance our offerings and create an even more welcoming and inclusive environment for our patrons and volunteers.

"This funding represents a tremendous vote of confidence in our mission and will enable us to continue delivering high-quality cultural experiences for the Hyde community." 

A significant portion of the grant will be dedicated to expanding the theatre's bar facilities, creating a more inviting space for patrons to socialise and enjoy refreshments before and after performances.

Additionally, funds will be allocated to establish amenities such as a cloak room and a dedicated break room for volunteers, providing essential support for the theatre's dedicated team of volunteers who contribute to its operations and success. 

"We are excited about the opportunities that this funding will unlock for Hyde Festival Theatre and the positive impact it will have on our visitors, volunteers, and the wider community," added Daniel.

"The support from the People’s Postcode Lottery will enable us to enhance our facilities and create a more vibrant and professional atmosphere for everyone to enjoy." 

This grant builds upon the People’s Postcode Lottery's continued support for Hyde Festival Theatre, including previous contributions that have enabled the theatre to update and maintain the front of the building, enhancing its aesthetic appeal.
