Therese Welcomes Grants to Arts Organisations in Suffolk

Therese has today welcomed the Arts Council for England's announcement that a share of the £30 million Catalyst Arts match funding money is to be distributed to organisations in the East of England.

The High Tide Festival Theatre and the Eastern Angles Theatre Company were awarded £150,000 and £120,000 respectively.

The Catalyst Arts scheme aims to make arts organisations more sustainable, resilient and innovative by increasing their fundraising potential and attracting new money to invest in additional artistic work.

Therese said: "This is great news. These awards will help the High Tide Festival and Eastern Angles to attract new money now and in the longer term."

"They are both excellent examples of organisations that provide opportunities for the public to enjoy the arts. The High Tide festival is an innovative organisation providing an eclectic mix of theatre and Eastern Angles with its touring ethos talking theatre to rural areas"
