More than £100 million has been awarded to hundreds of cultural organisations across the country, including Brighton People’s Theatre, in the latest round of support from the Culture Recovery Fund, the Culture Secretary announced today.
BPT has been awarded a grant of £25,115 by Arts Council England to support our work co-creating with our local communities, and help us to continue working towards our vision of theatre for all.
Naomi Alexander and Marina Norris – Joint CEOs of BPT said:
“We are grateful to Arts Council England South East and DCMS for their ongoing support of Brighton People’s Theatre. We love what we do, we love the communities we work with and we’re now able to build exciting plans for 2022 & 2023.”
Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries said:
“Culture is for everyone and should therefore be accessible to everyone, no matter who they are and where they’re from.
“Through unprecedented government financial support, the Culture Recovery Fund is supporting arts and cultural organisations so they can continue to bring culture to communities the length and breadth of the country, supporting jobs, boosting local economies and inspiring people.”
Over £1.2 billion has already been awarded from the unprecedented Culture Recovery Fund, supporting around 5000 individual organisations and sites across the country ranging from local museums to West End theatres, grassroots music venues to festivals, and organisations in the cultural and heritage supply-chains.
Darren Henley, Chief Executive, Arts Council England, said:
“This continued investment from the Government on an unprecedented scale means our theatres, galleries, music venues, museums and arts centres can carry on playing their part in bringing visitors back to our high streets, helping to drive economic growth, boosting community pride and promoting good health. It’s a massive vote of confidence in the role our cultural organisations play in helping us all to lead happier lives.”
