Trinity Bar has received nearly £60,000 of lifeline support to help it recover and reopen following the various lockdowns.

Following the first lockdown last year, Trinity Bar in Harrow feared it faced closure due to the loss of finances from the pandemic.

Now the bar is among more than 2,700 recipients to benefit from the £1.57billion Culture Recovery Fund issued by the Government.

The bar received a grant of £57,159 to help it recover.

Since the first lockdown, the community in Harrow came together to support its Crowdfunding campaign, which saw help from international artist such as Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

The donations became necessary after months of closures and cancellations from the first lockdown.

Now the Culture Recovery Fund will help the bar financially make up for lost time even more after being shut for the majority of 2020 and following the third lockdown.

This comes as the second fund from the Arts Council to support the venue.

Chris Perdue, Manager of Trinity said: ‘We are absolutely over the moon to receive this second round of funding from Arts Council. It gives us the peace of mind and breathing space to keep Trinity afloat until we can get back to something like resembling normal.

“It has been a stressful year for everyone involved in Trinity, but this funding helps not just us and our staff, but also artists, performers and technical staff who have also suffered enormously this year. We want to say a big thanks to everyone who has been so supportive this year and we can’t wait to get back to putting on live music again.’

Culture Secretary, Oliver Dowden, said: “Our record-breaking Culture Recovery Fund has already helped thousands of culture and heritage organisations across the country survive the biggest crisis they've ever faced. Now we’re staying by their side as they prepare to welcome the public back through their doors - helping our cultural gems plan for reopening and thrive in the better times ahead."
