Four local organisations have been awarded funding in a further round of the Culture Recovery Fund. A radio station and three cinemas in Totnes and South Devon are receiving a share of £107 million, bringing the total cash support package made available for culture during the pandemic to close to £2 billion.
Continuity support grants will be awarded to over 870 previous Culture Recovery fund recipients, administered by Arts Council England, British Film Institute, National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic England. Helping organisations survive and allowing them to resume programmes and events, the funding will mean people can have access to and enjoy everything they have to offer.
Below are the recipients of this latest round of funding:
Soundart Radio: £30,000.00
The Barn Cinema (Dartington Arts): £46,324.00
Kings Cinema (Merlin Cinemas): £34,486.36
Totnes Cinema: £29,704.00
I welcome the news that culture organisations in Totnes and South Devon are continuing to receive the support they need, and hope this funding enables them to continue offering a valuable service to local residents.
