LIVERPOOL Philharmonic will receive £750,000 from Arts Council England.

The funding will be used by Liverpool Philharmonic towards the cost of remodelling its orchestral stage risers and choir seating area to enhance onstage acoustics, improve the space for musicians and singers to perform at their best, and provide access for those with limited mobility to all areas of the stage.

The funding will enable Liverpool Philharmonic to continue providing high quality creative and cultural experiences for people in Liverpool.

Michael Eakin, Chief Executive, Liverpool Philharmonic said: “We are grateful to Arts Council England for their generous support, enabling us to make necessary improvements to our stage at Philharmonic Hall.

“We present around 250 concerts and events each year on the Philharmonic Hall stage and these will enable us to continue to provide the best quality musical experience for our audiences.”

The Capital Investment Programme supports the Arts Council’s mission to ensure communities across the country have the infrastructure where creativity for everyone can thrive. 

Darren Henley, Chief Executive, Arts Council England said: “This infrastructure investment will help a whole range of different cultural organisations across England to flourish, increasing opportunities for people to enjoy creatively excellent cultural events close to where they live.

“It’s particularly important that we’re making this happen in communities where cultural investment has historically been low.”
