Business Development Officer Report
We are hugely lucky once again to receive the backing of the Government and Arts Council England with Cultural Recovery Funding as well as recovery funding from Somerset Community Foundation.
There is much to be grateful at The Princess with the infrastructure and investment, but make no mistake we have a tough year ahead rebuilding and reshaping the Theatre and Arts Centre. We are going to need the grant funding and undesignated funds to support us in this recovery period.
We have continued to receive a vast amount of; work in kind from both volunteers and staff along with equipment donations. This is reflective of the passionate creatives engaged by The Princess to undertake the vision for the future.
There are a small number of delays on the current seating works, these are in hand and we will update you as soon as we are able and assign a walk round with Councillors.

2 radio/audio plays
