Max Steinberg CBE, Chair of the Shakespeare North Trust commented:
“Securing the financial support of such well respected foundations is such a huge boost for the project and we are delighted to have both the Foyle Foundation and Garfield Weston Foundation joining us on this journey to complete the UK’s Shakespearean triangle.
“The value of both grants demonstrates the respective Foundations’ confidence in the project and in the impact it can have on Prescot and its communities. These announcements come after months of productive work with both organisations to ensure that our vision and focus for the project is fully understood. It is so important to have like-minded people and organisations working with us and we look forward to the future with support from such well-renowned charitable organisations.”
