RESTRICTIONS because of the Covid pandemic are set to end in days.

But money is still available to arts organisations to aid recovery.

Ludlow Assembly Rooms, the Fringe Festival, Stokesay Court and the Regal in Tenbury have all benefitted from money during the pandemic.

This latest round of funding for arts and culture organisations at risk of failure due to the pandemic is now live, with £300m available to support their return to financial stability.

“This further £300m is a welcome addition to the Culture Recovery Fund and I would encourage local arts organisations to make the most of the funds available," said Philip Dunne, MP for Ludlow.
