The UK Government is expected to announce another £408m for the Arts Sector in tomorrow's Budget. This is ontop of the £1.57bn Culture Recovery fund announced last year.

Where exactly will the money be going? Well, the culture secretary Oliver Dowden made this comment on his Twitter page this morning:

Can confirm tmw's #Budget will include £400m for the arts on top of £1.5bn already announced It's a relief we can look ahead now so this funding is not just about survival, but planning & preparing for reopening of theatres, galleries and gigs
