Have your say

Doncaster performance venue Cast has been awarded a total grant of £960,000 over three years from Arts Council England.

The boost will see the Waterdale facility receive £320,000 each year between April 2015 and March 2018.

Cast director Kully Thiarai said: “We’re delighted that Arts Council England have offered to support Cast with an uplift in funding.

“It really is a marker of confidence in the incredible journey we have been able to take audiences on in just a few short months, and validation that – as one of the UK’s newest arts organisations – we’re very much on the right track in achieving the Arts Council’s goal of “great art for everyone”.”
