Glastonbury receives £900,000 support grant from government

The government has awarded Glastonbury Festival £900,000 in funding after both last year and this year's events were cancelled due to coronavirus.

The Festival normally welcomes around 200,000 people every summer and has lost millions of pounds in revenue as a result of the cancellations, threatening the long-term viability of the long-running music and arts event.

The government has earmarked almost £1.6 billion to support the culture and heritage sectors to get through COVID, and as part of the latest £400 million allocation, Glastonbury has received £900,000.

The money will go towards staging two small events later this year - including a possible mini-festival in September - as well as a rearranged main Festival in 2022.

"We're grateful to have been offered an award from the Culture Recovery Fund," Emily Eavis and Michael Eavis said in a statement.

"After losing millions from the cancellation of our last two Festivals, this grant will make a significant difference in helping to secure our future."

Other beneficiaries of the latest grants include the London Transport Museum (£850,000), Britain's oldest cinema the Phoenix Cinema (£138,333), the Criterion Theatre in the West End (£164,501) and the Wolverhampton Grand (£568,357).
