Mark Logan MP has welcomed the announcement that Bolton North East will receive £539,550 to support iconic cultural and heritage organisations in Bolton North East as they reopen and recover from coronavirus.
So far, the £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund has supported over 5,000 individual cultural and heritage organisations and sites. Those successful in this second round of funding include HDI Dance Camps, The Octagon Theatre Trust and Bolton Methodist Mission and Bolton Council.
Commenting, Mark Logan MP said:
“The past year has had a devastating impact on cultural and heritage organisations in Bolton North East, so it is fantastic news that £539,550 is being provided to support these valued organisations.
I’m extremely excited that as we continue on our roadmap , we’ll soon be able to enjoy these extraordinary institutions once again.”
Nearly all of the original £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund has now been allocated, and the Chancellor announced a further £300 million boost for the Fund at last month’s Budget, taking direct government investment in the sector since the start of the pandemic to almost £2 billion.
The Conservative Government is protecting our most treasured arts and cultural institutions – organisations that are irreplaceable parts of our heritage – ensuring they can survive in the short-term and thrive in the future.
