Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester and The Lyric Theatre, Belfast have been helped to reopen through an initiative by plastic sheeting supplier Plastic Sheets Shop.

The company launched a Protective Screen Grant, providing £2,000-worth of protective screens and related products to the two selected venues.

Founded in 1951, The Lyric is Northern Ireland’s only full-time producing theatre, while Hope Mill is an independent venue founded in 2015 by Joseph Houston and William Whelton.
