Milton Keynes Venues Receive £2m From Government’s Culture Recovery Fund

Well-loved venues across Milton Keynes are receiving a share of the Cultural Recovery Fund, with a total of £2,077,792 coming to the city.

This will see venues like Bletchley Park, Craufurd arms and the MK Museum receive a financial boost from the Government to help them survive and thrive.

The Culture Secretary, Oliver Dowden, has announced details of over 2,700 organisations being offered nearly £400 million in grants and loans to help the culture and heritage sector reopen and recover across England.

This brings the Government’s total investment across grants, capital and repayable finance from the Culture Recovery Fund so far to more than £1.2 billion across over 5,000 individual cultural and heritage organisations and sites.

Iain Stewart, MP for MK South, commented:

“It is great news that the Government has allocated over £2 million to venues across Milton Keynes through the the Cultural Recovery Fund.

“This money will be a huge boost for all them as they look to bounce back from the pandemic. I look forward to paying them a visit once they open their doors.”

Ben Everitt, the MP for Milton Keynes North, said:

“I’m delighted more of our fantastic local venues and cultural businesses have been provided with vital support which will help them recover as we begin the roadmap back to normality.

“I paid a visit to MK Museum last year before the pandemic hit and can’t wait to visit even more venues in Milton Keynes once restrictions have eased.”
