Cornwall secures £300,000 to spend on culture

Visitors to 5 star cottages Cornwall will be able to enjoy more cultured days out in the future after it was revealed how the county has secured more than £300,000 of Arts Council funding.  

The money has been given to Cornwall Council as part of a drive to “put culture at the heart” of the county’s roaring billion pound tourism economy.

The grant, for the very specific amount of £340,031, will help fund an ambitious project to create new culture partnerships over the next three years.

The county’s key arts and culture organisations, such as Kneehigh, Leach Pottery, Miracle Theatre, the Cornwall Arts Centre Trust and Newlyn Art Gallery, will use the money to work with tourist service providers and promote Cornwall’s “cultural wealth”.

The Hall for Cornwall, Tate St Ives and Visit Cornwall will also be part of the project.

The idea behind the funding is to promote culture to tourists – driving people to visit the county in order to watch theatre productions, visit galleries and partake in workshops while also capturing a share of the market in those who come to Cornwall for other reasons.

The funding is part of a £3m program called the Cultural Destinations programme.
