Support package for the arts

It's extremely good news for the arts and heritage sector that the UK Government has today announced a £1.57bn support package, £59m of which will be invested in Wales.

We're very keen to hear further details of how and when this funding will be shared. In our case, we hope it will allow us to create more of our own work to showcase Welsh talent, to continue providing opportunities for young people and to invest more in the talented freelance arts community in Wales.

This funding must be used to build a radical, new, more inclusive arts sector, and Wales Millennium Centre takes its own share of that responsibility very seriously. Once the full details become clear, this will be at the forefront of our strategic planning.

In the short-term, however, we remind all our supporters that we will not open until at least January 2021 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
