Now, as vehicle grilles — once declared nearly extinct in the Taurus/Sable/Intrepid/Crown Vic era ⁠— reach their zenith, […] The post QOTD: What Comes Next? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Speaking at the Theatres Trust Conference 2018 in London, Emma Stenning said: “We can’t be subsidy-reliant charities any longer. We have to look at our buildings as our principle assets. We have to keep saying how can it carry on giving back to the business.” She explained that the Bristol Old Vic previously made a £60,000 profit on its catering business, which is expected to increase to about £300,000 over the next 18 months, following the theatre’s refurbishment.

Old Vic Theatre Works To Rebuild Post-Kevin Spacey

After an investigation, the Old Vic said it had received 20 complaints of inappropriate behavior by Spacey, who led the theater between 2004 and 2015.

In response, the Old Vic trained staff members to act as “confidential sounding boards” to staff members experiencing abuse and unsure about what to do.

Bristol’s Old Vic Theatre Gets A New Door, And A New Acknowledgement Of The Theatre’s Place In Britain’s Slave Trade

Many of the theatre’s founding investors in 1766 made that money directly from the city’s slave trade. The Old Vic’s artistic director: “The theatre is undeniably a part of the slave trade legacy in Bristol. … The building came out of that economic boom and I don’t think it is enough anymore to just assume that people then did not know the trade was wrong.”
