In a move to be confirmed tomorrow (July 5th)...

It seems that the arts will be handed a financial lifeline in a move by the UK government.

The spread of COVID-19 has devastated arts and culture, with theatres, cinemas, and venues across the land forced to shut their doors.

With huge spaces such as the National Theatre confirming job losses, and even the Royal Albert Hall threatened with insolvency, politicians were placed under huge pressure to act.

Now - according to a number of figures, including former Tory Chancellor George Osbourne - the arts will be thrown a financial lifeline.

The move is set to be confirmed in full shortly, with George Osbourne seemingly breaking the press embargo.
