FEARS for the future of the Coventry Music Museum have been eased after the venue received a £15,800 grant from the Cultural Recovery Fund.
The cash will help the museum which has seen its visitor numbers drop to an all-time low during the lockdown and brought about a subsequent loss of revenue.
Pete Chambers BEM, Director of The Coventry Music Museum, said things were looking bleak and described the grant as a ‘game changer’.
“This amazing grant will take away much of our worry and help us pay a large part of the £20,000 a year it takes to keep us going.
“We just want to say a massive thanks to the Government’s Cultural Recovery Fund #HereForCulture.”
The museum has recently attained its ‘We’re Good to Go’ Covid-19 compliant rating, where safety comes first and
Test and Trace has long been in operation, plus a one way system, sanitiser, masks, even the pens are being sanitised.
