Arts charity secures �60k grant
MORE than �60,000 has been awarded to a North Somerset charity to bring the arts to more residents.
Theatre Orchard Project has been given the money by the Arts Council of England, which forms an 18-month core funding grant.
The group, which tours the district putting on indoor and outdoor performances as well as theatre workshops, will use part of the money to begin holding sessions in Pill.
Members plan to first put on a filmmaking project in the village before establishing what else would be well-received by residents.
The group also plans to use the money to develop grassroots theatre, multi-media and music projects over the next 18 months to allow more adults and children in North Somerset to get stuck into creative activity.
