Staff at risk of redundancy from Plymouth's Theatre Royal will stage a protest this weekend in the city centre.

The theatre announced this week that 100 jobs were at risk of redundancy after it lost 90% of its income because it has had to close because of Covid-19.

The Theatre Royal has received support from far and wide since the news broke, with actors who've starred at the theatre, including James Corden, who performed in One Man Two Guvnors there, tweeting about the proposed cuts.

Staff whose jobs are at risk have organised the peaceful protest for 11am on Saturday at the Sun Dial in the city centre.
