The Brook, Southampton receives lifeline grant from Government’s £1.57bn Culture Recovery Fund
The Brook has been awarded a vital grant as part of the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund (CRF) to help face the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and to ensure they have a sustainable future, the Culture Secretary has announced today.
The Brook is one of 1,385 cultural and creative organisations across the country receiving urgently needed support. £257 million of investment has been announced today as part of the very first round of the Culture Recovery Fund grants programme being administered by Arts Council England. Further rounds of funding in the cultural and heritage sector are due to be announced over the coming weeks.
Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said:
“This funding is a vital boost for the theatres, music venues, museums and cultural organisations that form the soul of our nation. It will protect these special places, save jobs and help the culture sector’s recovery.
“These places and projects are cultural beacons the length and breadth of the country. This unprecedented investment in the arts is proof this government is here for culture, with further support to come in the days and weeks ahead so that the culture sector can bounce back strongly.”
Chair, Arts Council England, Sir Nicholas Serota, said:
“Theatres, museums, galleries, dance companies and music venues bring joy to people and life to our cities, towns and villages. This life-changing funding will save thousands of cultural spaces loved by local communities and international audiences. Further funding is still to be announced and we are working hard to support our sector during these challenging times.”
Regarding Covid-19 & Shows – Updated: October 2020
Please Read Regarding Reschedules / Refunds…
Obviously, this is a moving target that we are all dealing with. We are busy rescheduling shows. We will announce each postponement as and when we have a replacement date or a cancellation. It is difficult to assess long-term outlook, but we will endeavour to keep you fully updated on our web-site & on our social media outlets with any changes to events that we have scheduled.
Only once a particular show has been postponed or cancelled can we action any refunds. Once this has happened, and if you can’t make the new date, online ticket refunds via Ticketweb may be requested here.
Follow this link to request a full refund from TicketWeb. For tickets purchased from The Brook box office directly, please contact the box office using the contact form on our website. Keep hold of your tickets, and we will be able to process refunds once we get the box office open again. Please do not contact for refunds before the date has changed as there is nothing that we can do until a cancellation has been confirmed.
We will review Box Office hours as and when Government advice suggests that we can open again, as we need to close the service to protect our staff.
