We are delighted to announce that Farm Factory Studios in Welwyn Garden City have been successful in our application for funding from the Arts Council England Cultural Recovery Fund.
With live music disappearing for the last 7 months (and still a little way off from returning to its former glory) the rehearsal and recording business has taken a severe beating during this period and we’re very grateful for the news of our success in securing this grant; it will go a long way towards guaranteeing the future of the studios well into 2021 and beyond and it will help us bring to fruition several new, exciting projects (more details to follow).
The Arts Council Grant will help us to continue to grow The Musiclab (our on-site music school) and to progress further with our educational outreach program. Allowing us to reach more local schools, pre-schools and youth organisations and to continue to make music accessible for the next generation of musicians.
We can now weather the storm and we are very happy to be able to continue to be a hub for creative expression and diversity for Welwyn Garden City and the surrounding areas!
Please, please, please continue to support your local scenes and creative businesses and look after each other!
