Mansfield District Council has been awarded over £1.7m from Arts Council England to deliver creative and cultural activity in the community.

The National Portfolio grant will be delivered over three years in payments of £579,304 and used to provide various projects at Mansfield Museum and Palace Theatre. The offer is conditional subject to formal acceptance by the authority. 
These funds will include new creative partnerships, collaborations with community groups and welcoming new artists to take residency in the town.
To be eligible for the funds, the council had to demonstrate it could contribute strongly to the Arts Council England Let’s Create project. The 10-year vision allows everyone to experience high-quality cultural experiences in England.

Councillor Stuart Richardson, Portfolio Holder for Regeneration and Growth said he was thrilled to see such a massive amount of investment in the arts coming into Mansfield.
