South Hill Park receives lifeline grant from Culture Recovery Fund

October 14, 2020

South Hill Park Arts Centre has been awarded £232,258 as part of the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund (CRF) to help face the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and to ensure we have a sustainable future.

South Hill Park is one of 1,385 cultural and creative organisations across the country receiving urgently needed support. £257 million of investment was announced on Mon 12 Oct as part of the very first round of the Culture Recovery Fund grants programme being administered by Arts Council England. Further rounds of funding in the cultural and heritage sector are due to be announced over the coming weeks.

We were delighted to have received this financial support. In June we launched a fundraising campaign to raise £500,000 to save the Arts Centre, and this package will help greatly towards securing the future for South Hill Park. We are incredibly grateful we can continue to entertain and support our community with the variety of live performances, cinema screenings, courses & workshops, exhibitions we offer, plus much more.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said: ‘This funding is a vital boost for the theatres, music venues, museums and cultural organisations that form the soul of our nation. It will protect these special places, save jobs and help the culture sector’s recovery.  

These places and projects are cultural beacons the length and breadth of the country. This unprecedented investment in the arts is proof this government is here for culture, with further support to come in the days and weeks ahead so that the culture sector can bounce back strongly.’

Chair, Arts Council England, Sir Nicholas Serota, said: ‘Theatres, museums, galleries, dance companies and music venues bring joy to people and life to our cities, towns and villages. This life-changing funding will save thousands of cultural spaces loved by local communities and international audiences. Further funding is still to be announced and we are working hard to support our sector during these challenging times.’

South Hill Park Chief Executive Craig Titley said: ‘On behalf of the Trustees, staff, volunteers and audiences at South Hill Park we are delighted and grateful to Arts Council England and the DCMS for awarding the Arts Centre a Culture Recovery Fund grant. South Hill Park Arts Centre has been serving the people of Bracknell Forest for almost 50 years and sits at the heart of our community. Over 200,000 people every year take part in a performing or visual arts course, watch a live performance or cinema screening or enjoy the beautiful grounds. The arts enrich our lives and this grant is a lifeline which will see us into 2021 with greater confidence and hope for the future. Thanks to this award we have now raised over £300,000 of our £500,000 fundraising target.’

South Hill Park Arts Centre is determined that the shows will go on, so please support live theatre. If you would like to donate to the South Hill Park fundraising campaign please click here.
