Government announces support for the arts

In light of the recently announced emergency support package for the arts from Government, Kathy Bourne and Daniel Evans, Executive and Artistic Director respectively, said:

'We greatly welcome the significant investment made by the Government in supporting the arts at this critical time. Thank you to the DCMS and all those who have worked tirelessly to demonstrate the vital role that culture plays in our lives. 

We now look forward to the future as we work with our colleagues across the industry to ensure we can reopen our theatre as soon as it is safe to do so and welcome audiences back to Chichester Festival Theatre.'
