British Motor Museum Awarded GBP707,000 from Government’s Culture Recovery Fund

The British Motor Museum has been awarded GBP707,000 as part of the government’s GBP1,57 billion Culture Recovery Fund (CRF) to help face the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and to ensure it has a sustainable future.

The British Motor Museum is one of 588 cultural and creative organisations across the country receiving urgently needed support – with GBP76 million of investment announced on Saturday. This follows GBP257 million awarded earlier in the week to 1,385 organisations, also from the CRF grants programme being administered by Arts Council England on behalf of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.

 Stephen Laing, head of collections, British Motor Museum, said "We are delighted that the government has given the British Motor Museum a generous award from the Culture Recovery Fund. It will enable us to continue to look after our amazing collections, support the talented team of people that work at the museum and plan for the future. It will also help us to keep welcoming visitors through the doors of the Museum in the coming months and to share our wonderful stories with them."
