Polka’s Response to Government Funding Announcement

July 7, 2020

The funding announced by the Government for the arts sector is very welcome news and a real step towards survival for our incredible theatre and arts sector. We look forward to hearing more detail on how this funding will be distributed, and when, and particularly how this will support the freelance workers who are so essential to our industry. We are hopeful that this will help to sustain theatres and arts organisations through continuing challenging times, although we know that there is a difficult road ahead.

We want to thank everyone who has supported Polka to date, either by making a donation or through sharing their love of theatre and lobbying for our essential work. There is a lot more work still to do, but we cannot wait to welcome you back through our doors in the spring.
