Major £14m boost for Norfolk theatre, arts and writing organisations
Seven arts and cultural organisations are set to share a major boost of almost £14m in funding.
Arts Council England (ACE) has revealed that the Norfolk Museums service, Creative Arts East and Out There Arts are among those getting extra funding.
In total, ACE will be giving £13,717,989 over three years - £4,572,663 per year split between the groups.
Hazel Edwards, ACE south-east area director, said they received a record number of applications and she hopes more people will be able to participate in varied cultural activities.
While most of the organisations are based in either Norwich or Great Yarmouth, Ms Edwards said ACE was encouraging winning organisations to reach out to the rest of Norfolk.
