Isle of Wight theatre receives funding boost

People taking Isle of Wight holidays this year may want to consider a trip to a theatre on the island, as the venue has received a grant from the Big Lottery Fund.

The Trinity in Cowes was handed £10,000 from the organisation and will use the money for refurbishment purposes, the Southern Daily Echo reports.

Work is expected to begin over the coming months and is likely to be finished by March 2012.

The theatre is run by the Cowes Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society and the organisation's president John Plumbly said it is constantly trying to improve the experience it offers for audiences, group members and other users.

He noted such efforts are sometimes difficult due to the current economic climate but added: "Funding like the Awards for All grant mean we can make major steps forward in our refurbishment project."

In a recent article for the Yorkshire Evening Post, Jeremy Gates noted there is always something to do for people heading out on Isle of Wight holidays - such as the garlic farm in Newchurch and day trips to Ryde.
