Business communications specialist NGC Networks has agreed a new 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 has recently reopened its doors following a £15.8 million redevelopment.
The partnership sees NGC an Associate Sponsor of Playhouse Education, an extensive programme of exciting creative and cultural education opportunities delivered by Leeds Playhouse.
NGC Networks has worked with the Playhouse for several years on the updating of its communications infrastructure. Through NGC, the theatre now has ultrafast, full fibre internet connectivity delivered by CityFibre.
The new high-speed connectivity means 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.
