Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, owned and operated by University of Lincoln, has received a grant of £71,600 from the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund to help the organisation recover and reopen. More than £300 million has been awarded to thousands of cultural organisations across the country including LPAC in the latest round of support from the Culture Recovery Fund, the Culture Secretary announced today. Lincoln Performing Arts Centre was previously successful in its application for £153,363 last autumn, which helped to safeguard local jobs and support its creative programmes. This further commitment to the centre will allow University of Lincoln to plan for a more sustainable future for LPAC, reviewing its business model in the light of changes to the sector nationally and the needs of audiences locally, whilst providing infrastructure support through its transition. Artistic Director of Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, Craig Morrow, said: “We are incredibly grateful for this ongoing support in such difficult times. This second grant means that we now have the space to plan for our reopening in a way that will better address the needs of local communities, exploring the long term sustainability of the venue and revitalising our role within the city.”
