Statement regarding £400m Budget boost for Culture & Arts

Julia Fawcett OBE, chief executive of The Lowry, said: “The Government’s Culture Recovery Fund and Job Retention Scheme demonstrate a clear recognition of the vital contribution that culture makes to the UK – both in terms of identity and economic prosperity.

“The Lowry is incredibly grateful for this support, without which, we simply would not have survived the challenges of the last year.

“Instead, we can now look forward to playing our part in the country’s recovery from COVID, welcoming audiences back to enjoy our programme, supporting self-employed freelancers in the sector and delivering on our commitment to enrich the lives of the most vulnerable in our communities.”
