March 2019: Arts Council England grant awarded

The Society is grateful to have been awarded a grant by Arts Council England for the 2019-20 season of concerts. The Society has to apply each year, and each year ACE has less and less money to go round all the worthy causes that apply for grants. We are grateful to be able to continue to bring world-class orchestras to Kendal with another full season of wonderful music for 2019-20.

When the Society makes a financial surplus, part of the grant has to be repaid. The grant is awarded on the basis of various conditions, a key one of which is to attract significant donations and grants from other sources.
