Vehicle firm gets Sheffield Theatres on the move!
A mini mobile theatre project may soon be a star turn in Sheffield thanks to a local firm.
In a show of support for Sheffield Theatres, Chesterfield-based B&B Vehicle Contracts, which operates across South Yorkshire and Derbyshire, has given the theatre one of its new vans for a year.
And, as well as transporting props around, it is also hoped the vehicle, which carries the Sheffield Theatres logo, will also be used for school visits and, with its back doors open, as a miniature performance area!
Steve Barker. a director in B&B, said: “Sheffield Theatres is involved in all kinds of important projects in the community, such as school visits, and deserves every encouragement to continue with this valuable work. It’s the company’s way of giving something back to the city where we do much of our vehicle leasing and contract work.”
Steve, of Whirlow, Sheffield, added: “As a family, we’ve always had a natural affinity with the theatre and that’s another reason for supporting Sheffield Theatres. It’s the first time we’ve been involved in this sort of project and we’re delighted with the way it’s working out.”
B&B Vehicles was established 15 years ago and supplies all makes and models of both cars and vans to many local and national companies.
Andrew Loretto, Creative Producer at Sheffield Theatres said: “We are delighted to be working with B & B Vehicle Contracts and want to thank them for recognising and supporting the work we do both at Sheffield Theatres and across the city. The vehicle will make a big difference to helping us realise our plans to work with artists, communities and spaces throughout the greater Sheffield area, and will also help staff working on Crucible Theatre productions such as The Way of the World.”
