    We hope you are coping amidst the challenging circumstances of COVID-19. As an arts organisation we do understand the pain you are experiencing. With many events cancelled and uncertainty around the future, the arts sector is going through difficult times and is worried about its survival.  In response Government and other funding bodies have announced various grant and support schemes specifically for the arts sector and artists to enable us to get through these times.  On this page we have collated information on funding being offered by Arts Council England and from other sources.
