Oliver Dowden – 2020 Comments on the Culture Recovery Fund

The comments made by Oliver Dowden, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, on 24 October 2020.

As part of our unprecedented £1.57 billion rescue fund, today we’re saving British cultural icons with large grants of up to £3 million – from Shakespeare’s Globe to the Sheffield Crucible. These places and organisations are irreplaceable parts of our heritage and what make us the cultural superpower we are. This vital funding will secure their future and protect jobs right away.
