Wolverhampton Grand Theatre have announced that football legend Steve ‘Bully’ Bull MBE will become their first Grand Theatre Ambassador.
The Steve Bull Foundation has been instrumental in funding some of the theatre’s community projects over the last three years, including the installation of state-of-the-art audio description units for visually-impaired patrons; funding the annual Introduction to Pantomime tour which visits children’s wards and hospices; and support of the very first Grand fundraising golf day.
As a ‘thank you’, the theatre has renamed the VIP Gatsby Booth in the Dress Circle the Steve Bull Booth, sponsored by Britvic. Steve says, “Like the Wolves, the Grand is a vital part of Wolverhampton City Centre. The foundation strives to support local people, and this is exactly what the theatre does. The quality of the shows that are put on the stage along with the staff are superb and I hope that my role will encourage more people to attend.”
