£128,800 is being provided to help iconic cultural and heritage organisations in Southport reopen and recover.
Across the country, more than 2,700 culture and heritage organisations and independent cinemas are being supported to survive and thrive with nearly £400 million.
This is part of the unprecedented Culture Recovery Fund, worth almost £2 billion, the largest one-off investment in the arts.
Commenting, Damien Moore MP said: “The past year has had a devastating impact on cultural and heritage organisations in Southport, so it is fantastic news that £128,800 is being provided to support these most valued organisations.
“I’m really excited that as we set out on our cautious roadmap to reopening up this sector, we’ll soon be able to enjoy these extraordinary institutions once again, and I’m delighted that the support is being put in place to help them thrive in the future.”
Oliver Dowden, Culture Secretary, said: “Our record-breaking Culture Recovery Fund has already helped thousands of culture and heritage organisations across the country survive the biggest crisis they've ever faced.
“Now we’re staying by their side as they prepare to welcome the public back through their doors - helping our cultural gems plan for reopening and thrive in the better times ahead.”
