Civic thanks to mark the Crucible at 40

COUNCILLORS have passed a motion congratulating the work of Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre on its 40th anniversary.

Labour councillor Pat Midgley said: “As someone who is a regular at the Crucible Theatre, I think we are very fortunate to have such a venue in Sheffield, which always brings some of the top productions and stars to our city. I am very pleased that we are able to recognise the contribution that it makes to the cultural offer of the city.”
