Cultural and heritage organisations to receive a £1.57bn support package

The UK's arts, culture and heritage industries will receive a £1.57 billion rescue package to help weather the impact of coronavirus, the government has announced.  Organisations - many of which are charities - across the performing arts and theatres, heritage, historic palaces, museums, galleries, live music and independent cinema will be able to access emergency grants and loans.  The money will provide a lifeline to cultural and heritage organisations hit hard by the pandemic. Plus funding to restart paused projects will help support employment, including freelancers working in these sectors.
