Arts Council Funding

We’re delighted to have been given a grant of £35,000 from Arts Council England. This is much needed at a time when our revenue dried up almost completely in March.

We’ve been hatching plans since then, working with talented companies and artists on creative projects that can unite the town and animate the building. Logistically, we’re having to constantly review and amend these (and in some cases, sadly, to abandon them).

As things become clearer in the coming weeks and months, we’ll announce our plans. But in the meantime, we wanted to say a huge thank you to all who’ve bought a lottery ticket in the last twenty-five years, to all who pay their taxes and to a funder who has distributed this money at speed and with remarkable vision. This funding ensures art and culture will play a vital role in the future of Trowbridge.
