London's Old Red Lion theatre pub has been awarded a grant of £250,000 from the government's 'levelling up' funding, reports The Stage.

According to the government, the funding has saved the pub theatre from risk of closure. The venue plans to relaunch as an arts and social hub, which will see it host more community events.
