The Welsh Government is today announcing a £53m fund to help Wales’ diverse culture sector deal with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

The fund is intended to provide essential support to theatres, galleries, music venues, heritage sites, museums, galleries, archive services, events and festivals, and independent cinemas who have all seen a dramatic loss of revenue due to the pandemic. Funding will support both organisations and individuals in the sector.

The total funding package is £53m in 2020-21 comprising £50m revenue and £3m capital.

Further details, including guidance for applicants, will be announced later in August.
