St John’s Cathedral wins award to restart activities

The Culture Recovery Fund has awarded £95,700 to St John’s Cathedral to help it recover from the effects of the pandemic and restart tower tours, room hire and musical events. 

Canon David Paul, who is both Dean and a Trustee of the Cathedral, said: “We are delighted to receive this much-needed funding. The Cathedral Trust’s finances have been adversely affected by the Covid pandemic and this will help us to recover.

“Apart from paying for ongoing overheads, it will allow essential repairs to the Tower so that we can restart our much-loved tours and enable us to put on musical events once again this summer.”

Thousands of organisations across the UK will receive cash from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sports (DCMS) Culture Recovery Fund to help them survive and recover from the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic. St John’s is one of only four Catholic cathedrals to receive such funding.
