Grant awarded by Cultural Recovery Fund

12th October 2020

We are absolutely thrilled that Stamford Shakespeare Company has been awarded a grant from the Arts Council England’s Cultural Recovery Fund. Together with the money raised through our Just Giving account and local fundraising initiatives, we are able to continue with next year’s productions. We cannot wait to welcome back our audience, who have been so generous with their support.

However, as Covid-19 continues to affect the arts, we are acutely aware of the precarious nature of our future. It is likely we will only be able to play to houses of one third of capacity, due to social distancing and the priority of keeping our audience safe. This will make a huge difference to our usual revenue and cash flow. Therefore, we must continue to fundraise. We reached, and even surpassed, our first hurdle far quicker than we anticipated, thanks to the generosity of the public plus the grant, but we will continue to fight to ensure our survival for generations to come.
