Transport Museum Wythall is pleased to announce the award of £42,500 from the Arts Council Culture Recovery Fund - Round Two. This grant is sponsored by The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and is designed to help art and culture organisations with recovery from Covid-19 and in consequence, support the future sustainability of such organisations.
TMW will use the funding to recover the effects of income loss from its extended closure period in 2020 and 2021 and enable the restart of its ambitious future plans for the museum (including an exhibition hall extension) and the all-important visitor experience.
TMW Chairman Dave Taylor said, ‘2020 was an extremely challenging year in which our income virtually ground to a halt. Our normal revenue flow will not re-commence until we reopen on May 22nd so this funding is hugely important to us and with its receipt, we applaud the Arts Council and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport for raising public awareness of the importance of supporting art and culture’.
Transport Museum Wythall very much looks forward to welcoming visitors old and new from May 22nd.
