Grant success to support reopening of churches

02 Apr 2021
We are delighted to have received a grant award of £120,800 from the Culture Recovery Fund, which will support a number of activities that we need to undertake to ensure that our sites are safe and welcoming for visitors and ready to generate vital income to support sustainability.


Activities will include routine maintenance visits and inspections across the entire estate which will be crucial after a lengthy period of lockdown and some minor conservation repairs. We will also be preparing our Champing™ sites to welcome visitors from May.



About #HereForCulture

Here for Culture is a movement that unites the public, government and cultural organisations in support of our fantastic cinemas, theatres, music venues, museums, galleries and heritage.

Whether on the global stage or quietly in our own lives, culture inspires, uplifts, comforts and entertains us. Now, in these challenging times, it’s our turn to provide a lifeline and show our support. The government is #HereForCulture with an unprecedented amount of funding coming through on top of the furlough scheme, bounce-back loans and emergency grants. The public has been #HereForCulture as organisations have innovated online and outdoors.
