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.

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.
