Grant means means work with young people facing real challenges can continue in King’s Lynn
The Garage Trust has received a grant of £54,974 from the government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund. It’s among more than 2,700 recipients to benefit from the latest round of awards from the £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund. While it is presently able to trade at full capacity, this award will support its site in Norwich and sister venue The Workshop in King’s Lynn to continue until it can return to increased numbers and invite participants and audiences to join them once more.
The Workshop is a lively cultural venue in the heart of King’s Lynn offering a varied programme of creative activities including performances, community projects and regular classes for all ages, abilities and backgrounds.
Adam Taylor, The Garage’s Executive Director, said: “The pandemic’s been tough. Our doors may have been closed but we’ve been working hard for our future and for the people who benefit from the work we do. Thanks to continued support and our amazing team’s dedication we’ve been able to trade at full capacity, albeit online. The funding from the Culture Recovery Fund will mean The Garage Trust’s charitable work with young people facing real challenges can continue at both sites until we’re able to open once more. The cultural sector will bounce back and we’re really looking forward to inviting everybody back into both spaces.”
