£75m Grants given through Culture Recovery Fund

The Culture Secretary, Oliver Dowden, has that 35 cultural organisations across the country will receive grants ranging from £1m to £3m, totalling £75m.

The £75m is part of the £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund that was announced in August.

Among the beneficiaries of the grants are the Shakespeare Globe, the Sheffield Crucible and Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre.

The 35 organisations that will receive a grant, will be the first to benefit from the Culture Recovery Fund.

£500m has been allocated to another 2,500 cultural organisations, of all sizes, across the country.

Grants are being awarded to places that define culture in all corners of the country, providing jobs, supporting the wider community and engaging the public through innovative means during the pandemic.

The Cultural Recovery Fund aims to support cultural organisations through the pandemic, due to reduced visitor numbers, and by extension less money coming through the door.

All four nations are benefiting from the UK Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund, with £188 million barnetted to the Devolved Administrations to run their own process - £97 million for Scotland, £59 million for Wales and £33 million for Northern Ireland.

Culture Secretary, Oliver Dowden, said:

“As part of our unprecedented £1.57 billion rescue fund, today we’re saving British cultural icons with large grants of up to £3 million - from Shakespeare’s Globe to the Sheffield Crucible. These places and organisations are irreplaceable parts of our heritage and what make us the cultural superpower we are. This vital funding will secure their future and protect jobs right away.”
