The Lagos State Government, on Thursday, handed over the management of the iconic Glover Memorial Hall to Lufodo, a theatre and film production company founded by Olu and Joke Jacobs.

The Glover Memorial Hall (GMH) is a heritage building for theatre and performing arts in Lagos. It was built in 1887 in honour of the second governor of Lagos Colony, Sir John Hawley Glover. It was, in 1903, the first to host the public screening of a film in Nigeria.

After a rigorous bidding process for the concession to manage GMH, Lufodo won, and on Thursday, the Commissioner of Tourism, Arts & Culture, Uzamat Akinbile-Yusuf, along with the Permanent Secretary, Adenike Adedoyin-Ajayi, and Director of Theatre, Mr Ogunsote, handed over the management of the hall to Lufudo.

Speaking during the short hand-over ceremony, the Commissioner for Tourism, Arts, and Culture said Lufodo Productions was appointed due to its expertise, envisaging that the organisation would further enhance the visibility and viability of the hall.
