Oundle Music Trust receives lifeline grant from the Government's £1.57bn Cultural Recovery Fund
We were delighted to have been awarded a Cultural Recovery Fund grant of £58,823 to help us face the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. This award is a testament to the hard work of our small team and to our importance as a cultural hub within Oundle and the greater East Midlands area. It will enable us to proceed with planning future events as we hopefully emerge from the current crisis.
Oundle Music Trust, which runs Oundle International Festival, Oundle for Organists, Oundle Cinema and Oundle Food Festival, is one of 1,385 cultural and creative organisations across the country receiving urgently needed support. £257 million of investment was announced on 12 October 2020 as part of the very first round of the Culture Recovery Fund grants programme being administered by Arts Council England.
