Gunnersbury wins funds from Culture Recovery Fund

We are delighted to have received £187,795 of the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund, administered by Arts Council England.

Following on from our success in a previous round of the Culture Recovery Fund, this new grant is a vital boost to our long term commercial recovery after the devastating impact of the pandemic. These funds will be invested in ensuring our operations become more sustainable and is essential in allowing us to continue to provide an exciting cultural and heritage offer for our local communities.

CEO David Bowler said, "We are delighted to receive this essential support which will underpin our recovery from the impact of the pandemic."

Over £1.2 billion has already been awarded from the unprecedented Culture Recovery Fund.

This is 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.

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.

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.’
