Government Culture Recovery grant for 78 Derngate

RecoveryGrant78 Derngate has been awarded a grant of £38,400 by HM Government’s Culture Recovery scheme in association with The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

“Culture creates jobs, supports livelihoods, and brings joy to everyone. The UK leads the world in the creative industries and we can all feel pride in that.

Now, in these challenging times, it’s our turn to show our support for culture. With an unprecedented investment through the £1.57bn Cultural Recovery Fund, the government is #HereForCulture so it can weather the storm of coronavirus and come back stronger.

And we are #HereForCulture too.

#HereForCulture is a movement that unites the public, government and cultural organisations in support of our fantastic cinemas, theatres, music venues, museums, galleries and heritage.

We want people to make sure that where they are able to visit local culture venues in their communities, they do so in a covid secure way. Plus, with more and more culture being curated online, there is no better time to support and enjoy all the new and exciting ways culture is available to us.

By being #HereForCulture, we aren’t just supporting the people in the industry, we’re also supporting communities across the country.”


The Secretary of the 78 Derngate Northampton Trust, Les Patterson said “We are very grateful to the Culture Recovery Fund in granting this money which will enable us to open over the next six months and make plans for the future.”
