The De La Warr Pavilion is thrilled to receive support from the Garfield Weston Foundation’s Weston Culture Fund.

Being closed for so long means this support will be critical to restoring the work we do in our communities, presenting future exhibitions, developing learning activities and supporting artists.

We are delighted that our partners Hastings Contemporary – who we work with through the Coastal Culture Trail, Sussex Modern, England’s Creative Coast and more – also received support from the fund.

Thank you very much to the Garfield Weston Foundation!


About the Weston Culture Fund

“Our cultural sector is at the heart of our local communities providing not only entertainment but education and inspiration for many. Our Trustees were impressed by the entrepreneurial spirit shown across the arts in response to Covid-19 and it was a privilege to hear what organisations had been doing to not only survive but also to reinvent the way they reach audiences. What really stood out was the level of collaboration and support they had for each other and the determination to keep going, despite the increasingly difficult situation.

We all want and need our cultural sector to thrive and, if anything, our time away from the arts has shown just how important they are to us – bringing much needed pleasure and enrichment to our lives. Arts organisations are desperate to re-open and get back to what they do best, and we hope that this new funding will help many of them do exactly that.” – Philippa Charles, Director, Garfield Weston Foundation.
