Venues and organisations, including The Cavern Club in Liverpool and the London Symphony Orchestra, are to receive a share of £257m government arts funding.

The Cavern, which hosted early gigs from The Beatles, has been given £525,000 to fund the recording of performances from local musicians.

There are 1,300 organisations that will benefit, including the Birmingham Royal Ballet and the Bristol Old Vic.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden described the move as “a vital boost”.

‘Soul of the nation’
“This funding is a vital boost for the theatres, music venues, museums and cultural organisations that form the soul of our nation,” said Dowden in a statement.

“It will protect these special places, save jobs and help the culture sector’s recovery.”
