Belgrade Theatre in Coventry Executive director at the Belgrade Theatre, Joanna Reid, said it is a 'real mark of confidence'

The Belgrade Theatre in Coventry is to receive a £240,000 grant from Arts Council England.

The grant will be made available over three years and will allow the theatre to invest in more theatre and drama-based education work.

Birmingham Repertory Theatre has also been awarded £180,000 and Warwick Arts Centre will receive £120,000.

It is part of the Catalyst Arts scheme that increases fundraising potential and supports additional arts activity.
