Once again the National Lottery has come to the aid of another threatened British institution. £12.8 million grant from the National Lottery Arts Council secures the future of Haworth Tompkins’ proposed redevelopment and renovation of Liverpool’s Everyman Theatre. The National Lottery payout comes after lengthy talks between the National Lottery Arts Council and Liverpool City Council.

Haworth Tompkins won the contract to serve as architects for the project back in April 2007, beating shortlisted firms Keith Williams, LDN, Ian Ritchie and Artsteam. The redevelopment proposal will see; an expansion of the Everyman to a 400 seat theatre, the reappearance of the Everyman Bistro, a new dedicated space for the youth theatre and other community projects, brand new catering and bar facilities and a new rehearsal and production workshop funded by the National Lottery Arts Council.

The Liverpool and Merseyside Theatres Trust, which operates the Everyman Theatre, is also generating extra funding in an effort to raise a further £2 million to support the project via a long-running public campaign involving local community groups. Design and planning applications will now be submitted for agreement with work on the iconic theatre due to begin in 2011 and the theatre due to be ready for reopening by 2013.

Thankfully the National Lottery Arts Council has helped to secure the future of yet another one of Britain’s great institutions. This is just one of the many ways that the different National Lottery Good Causes helps struggling needy causes.
