Middle Child offered £458,280 investment from Arts Council England

By 4 November 2022News

Middle Child can confirm we have once again been invited into Arts Council England’s National Portfolio, for the years 2023-2026.

The Arts Council have made us a conditional offer of £458,280 investment in total, or £152,760 per year, which is equivalent to our previous funding agreement.

This continued support will help us to pursue our vision of a world where anybody’s story can be told and heard, through the creation of world class performances and the development of theatre workers in Hull and the East Riding.

Middle Child are committed to championing new voices, unheard and unknown, and will use this investment to continue to work towards a more inclusive and representative industry.

We will reveal further details of our plans for the next National Portfolio programme in the new year, following the negotiating period and a final agreement with Arts Council England.

In the meantime, we look forward to presenting our rock and roll pantomime, Robin Hood: Prince of Thorngumbald, at Social this Christmas.
