A MELBOURNE Festival arts project has received a fantastic financial boost from Arts Council England.
The whopping £29,000 grant will help to launch a new programme of free workshops at their Church Street gallery.
Along with grants from other funding bodies, the money will help festival organisers provide “something for everyone to get involved with, ranging from water colour painting to letter press printing, creating with glass and modelling with clay”.
If this sounds like something you would be interested in full details can be found in our February edition.
You will also read how Melbourne is having a starring role in a TV series, thanks to comedian Johnny Vegas and his Carry On Glamping show.
Melbourne Hall and estate development manager Roger Lowe said the Channel 4 series had been around two years in the filming and he was pleased it had given a welcome spotlight on the area.
