ERT will receive a lifeline grant from the Culture Recovery Fund

Great news! East Riding Theatre has been awarded £72,522 as part of the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund to help face the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and to ensure they have a sustainable future, the Culture Secretary has announced. 

East Riding Theatre is one of 1,385 cultural and creative organisations across the country receiving urgently needed support. £257 million of investment has been announced today 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. 

The funding will help ERT to develop, continue to produce online content, prepare the building for safe reopening in 2021 and once again return with the style of life-affirming production that's become so familiar to local people.
