Communications firm invests in partnership with city theatre
Business communications specialist NGC Networks has signed a partnership with Leeds Playhouse, to which it provides ultrafast internet connectivity and full-service telecoms support.
Wakefield-based NGC Networks has become a Corporate Partner of Leeds Playhouse, which recently reopened its doors following a £15.8m redevelopment.
The partnership sees NGC become an Associate Sponsor of Playhouse Education, which is an extensive programme of creative and cultural education opportunities delivered by Leeds Playhouse.
The business has worked with the Playhouse for several years on the updating of its communications infrastructure, resulting in the theatre now having ultrafast, full fibre internet connectivity delivered by CityFibre.
Thanks to this high-speed connectivity, the Playhouse’s entire telephony service is provided over the internet. NGC has also delivered a more robust data disaster recovery solution.
Nikki Guest, director at NGC Networks, said: “We have been a longstanding supplier to the Playhouse and are very pleased to agree a partnership with them. We applaud the work they do particularly through their outreach programmes which engage thousands of people every year.”
Kate Jeeves, head of development at Leeds Playhouse, said: “We welcome NGC’s support during this exciting chapter in the Playhouse’s history.
“Their contribution helps us to deliver a 21st century venue that will continue to welcome, engage and entertain generations to come.”
The redevelopment of Leeds Playhouse has provided improved access and facilities and a striking new city-facing entrance. It also has a new studio theatre, the Bramall Rock Void, a hub for local artists and theatre makers.
