Funds awarded by the Covid-19 Culture Recovery Fund Round 1 Grants have been published for Tower Hamlets.

And the Culture Recovery Fund winners are…

Rich Mix has been awarded £971,000 (which will make many members of Tower Hamlets Labour Party happy), the Whitechapel Gallery £534,0000 and Studio Spaces £500,000.

Studio who? Studio Spaces is an events and photography studio space in Pennington Street Wapping.  Impressive that Studio Spaces has been offered five times more than Wilton’s Music Hall.

How did you manage that Studio Spaces? Please email us hello@eastendenquirer.org and let us know because people are already asking us and we have not a clue.
