As part of the Government Culture Recovery Fund, grants have been awarded to two Sussex based event companies.
So Sussex are the creators of the Elderfower Fields Family Festival which takes at Pippingford Park.
Sussex Events Limited provide technical support and production services for events across the South East.
An overall investment of £257 million has been made across the country, helping over 1,000 venues and cultural organisations plan for live performances restarting, protect jobs and create opportunities.
Wealden MP Nus Ghani said, “I am proud that Wealden is home to many award-winning events and festivals, and to many of the country’s best technicians. I appreciate the hardships they have faced due to the pandemic and following conversations with many Wealden residents who work in the sector, I have previously written to the Secretary of State, urging him to consider further assistance to support the industry. I am delighted that this funding will help Wealden’s event organisers back on their feet and protect our local jobs. There is more to be done to support Wealden through the pandemic and I will continue to campaign for more funding for the constituency.”
