Lifeline support for Performing Arts Venues

Fiona Hyslop Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Fair Work and Culture

A targeted £10 million fund to support Scotland’s performing arts venues has been announced by Culture Secretary Fiona Hyslop.

Created as part of the Scottish Government’s £185m Business Support Fund, the Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund will help venues who cannot yet reopen to their audiences due to the ongoing impact of coronavirus (COVID-19). The fund is actively considering support for grassroots music venues.

The fund will be run by Creative Scotland. Full details will be published shortly.
