Harrow Arts Centre in Hatch End has been awarded £356,237 as part of the Government’s £1.57billion Culture Recovery Fund to help face the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and to ensure they have a sustainable future.
The centre is the hub for culture and art in Harrow – hosting events from music, theatre, comedy, dance, and film events in the Grade II listed Elliot Hall to local community groups, classes and events in meeting rooms, rehearsal spaces, dance studios and art rooms.
Councillor Keith Ferry, Regeneration, Planning and Employment Portfolio Holder, said: “The award of these grants to Harrow’s top cultural assets is very welcome as we seek to safeguard our cultural legacy amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“This funding means that Harrow residents can continue to learn about the history of the area through a free high-quality museum service and learning programme, and enjoy a show or attend a class, exhibition or workshop – all currently virtually or socially distanced.”
