The new Trustees join Sheffield Theatres following another successful year. The company received four awards at the UK Theatre Awards before retaining the title of Regional Theatre of the Year in The Stage Awards for an unprecedented second year. In July, the organisation will refurbish the Lyceum Theatre in a £1.9 million project.

Neil Adleman, Chair of Sheffield Theatres' Board said: 'I am delighted to welcome these six local professionals to join the Board. The quality of the applicants was outstanding and I am thrilled that we have attracted such a diverse and talented group to join the Trustees. With inspiring and decisive leadership, Sheffield Theatres has placed itself at the forefront of regional theatre and with this strong Board of Trustees in place, I believe we will continue to do so.'
