The Square Chapel Arts Centre has been awarded a £30,000 grant to support its Open Doors project.

Open Doors is a schools theatre outreach programme, created in order to increase participation in the arts for children in disadvantaged areas across Calderdale. The programme lasts for over three years.

Funding has come from The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, which champions the breaking down of barriers to engagement in the arts.

The arts centre completed a £6m extension earlier this year.
