Funds awarded to support Slough arts

Alert message sent 15/10/2020 16:21:00

Information sent on behalf of Slough Council

Slough Borough Council has been awarded £65,508 as part of the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund to help face the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and to ensure a sustainable arts future, the Culture Secretary has announced.

The council is just one of 1,385 cultural and creative organisations across the country receiving urgently needed support. Investment of £257 million has been announced as part of the very first round of the Culture Recovery Fund grants programme being administered by Arts Council England.

The funding awarded to Slough Borough Council is to help protect the future viability of The Curve through a number of adaptations to the Venue. This will enable future shows and events to be more adaptable to the challenges of Covid-19.

Changes include upgrading the current bench seating in the Venue to individual seating to enable social distancing, the purchase of camera equipment and improvements in existing fixed camera spot to allow for live streaming from the Venue and purchasing additional performer’s microphones and mobile sound and lighting desks to give more flexibility in how shows are put on.

The team is working hard to make Venue at The Curve as safe and inviting as possible to welcome back audiences over the coming season.

A special version of the well-loved pantomime is planned this December and the team is working with the regular pantomime producer DK proDuKtions. This year’s pantomime is Jack and the Beanstalk.
