One of Chichester’s biggest cultural attractions is on the way to a huge overhaul, it had just been announced.

Chichester Festival Theatre has cleared a major hurdle towards securing the millions it needs for its ambitious £22m 50th-anniversary redevelopment programme.

Arts Council England has confirmed that the CFT has successfully completed Stage One of the application process to receive £12 million towards its RENEW project.
