City Bridge Trust funding for Park Theatre
15 August 2017
We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded a three-year grant from the City of London Corporation’s charitable funder, City Bridge Trust. This is to fund our accessible performance programme, install evacuation chairs throughout the venue to support disabled patrons, implement adaptations to our website and integrate access training throughout our organisation, to offer a warm and inclusive welcome to everyone visiting Park Theatre.
“This is a theatre that was built to be enjoyed by as many people as possible, both in Finsbury Park and beyond. With help from the City Bridge Trust, we can continue supporting D/deaf and disabled audiences through to 2020.” Jez Bond | Artistic Director
David Farnsworth, Director of City Bridge Trust, said:
“The Trust is delighted to be able to support this vital work enabling D/deaf and disabled Londoners to access performances at Park Theatre. We firmly believe that the arts should be fully accessible to everyone, regardless of their background or circumstances.”
Thank you City Bridge Trust from all of us at Park Theatre.
