  • Cultural recovery grant – we have made available grants to those cultural venues across the borough that have been closed or severely impact as result of Covid, to help them reopen safely. If you are eligible for this grant your business will be contacted by the end of March. These grants are available for theatres, and arts venues only. These grants are not available for venues that are ‘pop up’ cultural venues on an ad hoc basis.

If you require any further help or advice with regards to the Additional Restrictions Grant, then please email business@bromley.gov.uk

 We are working through claims in the order they are received as quickly as possible.  The validation checks required may take up to 15 working days, this is because we will be using tools recommended by the government that are provided by external organisations.
