The Eastern Angles Theatre Company has recently opened a new centre with live streaming facilities following the receipt of £25,000 new funding from the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership.
The theatre is an art and heritage community hub that focuses on regional stories on the big stage as well as new writing, new audiences and the development of new talents.
Ivan Cutting, the artistic director of the Eastern Angles Centre, said: "We started moving in just as the pandemic hit and so had to bide our time for the Records Office to move out with both of our staff under severe restrictions of movement, attendance and health.
“We are now opening up a building to our local community with various activities like Homework Club, Digital Drop In, Ipswich Reggae Choir, and our current Summer Holiday Club.
“It’s great to see a place that was previously very secluded come alive and literally fling the doors and windows open."
Iain Dunnett, the senior coordinator for the Growing Places Fund, said: “The Eastern Angles Theatre Company have made further improvements to their Eastern Angles Centre in Ipswich with support from the LEP through the Business Resilience and Recovery Fund.
“They have improved facilities for performance at the Sir John Mills Theatre, increased facilities for community involvement and improved back-office support for their well-regarded performances that tour across East Anglia.”
