Broadway to receive further financial support
Broadway to receive £162,968 from third round of the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund.
More than £100 million has been awarded to hundreds of cultural organisations across the country including Broadway in the latest round of support from the Culture Recovery Fund, the Culture Secretary announced today.
Broadway in the heart of Nottingham’s Creative Quarter has been awarded a grant of £162,968 as part of the third round of funding from the Government’s Cultural Recovery Fund.
Steve Mapp, CEO of Broadway said:
“Since May, thousands of people have returned to Broadway to enjoy cultural activity and the big-screen cinema experience. The continued support from the Cultural Recovery Fund has given us the financial security we need to build on this successful re-opening safely, whilst also confidently planning for our longer-term future."
The third round of funding will support organisations from all corners of the sector as they deal with ongoing reopening challenges, ensuring they can thrive in better times ahead.
Thanks to the success of recent releases such as No Time to Die, The French Dispatch and Dune and the positive audience response to Broadway’s extensive refurbishment, Broadway has recently experienced its busiest month since re-opening.
Steve Mapp added:
“Audiences have been extremely excited to experience our new look and can look forward to further new releases and retrospective screenings of classics through to the new year. We look forward to welcoming them to Broadway”
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”.
