A Nottingham venue has been awarded £70,400 from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to continue its heritage and archive work.

The Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall (TRCH) has also been given money for the £88,900 project by Nottingham Civic Society. It means the venue will be able to expand its archive which was first established after the Theatre Royal’s 150th anniversary in 2015.

The next phase will include cataloguing the history of the Royal Concert Hall. More than 10 million people have been through the doors of the 38-year-old Concert Hall which has been hailed as one of the finest in the country.

David Longford, TRCH creative learning manager, said, “we’re so delighted with this award from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

“This has been achieved through the constant hard work and enthusiasm over the past few years of all our heritage volunteers and supporters. We’d like to thank our funders for enabling us to embed our heritage work at the venue and allowing us to develop some very exciting future projects.”
