THE Scottish Salmon Company has teamed up with National Theatre of Scotland to allow four theatre productions to tour primary schools across the country.

The independent salmon producer is sponsoring Theatre in Schools Scotland, which will benefit from a second year of sponsorship from the newly launched Culture & Business Fund Scotland.

The partnership previously received match funding from the New Arts Sponsorship Grants Programme, enabling a Scotland-wide tour school theatre tour to take place during late 2016.

The new fund, which matches business sponsorship of cultural activities pound for pound, is managed by independent charity Arts & Business Scotland and funded by the Scottish Government via Creative Scotland and Historic Environment Scotland.

Scottish Salmon Company CEO Craig Anderson said: “We’re really proud to be supporting the Theatre in Schools Scotland initiative for a second year. It has already brought enormous benefit to school children living in many of the remote and rural communities where we operate.”
