Funding Allocation for Upgrades of Galway Facilities for Arts & Culture

The government’s Arts & Culture Capital Scheme is to provide a total of €9m to 56 cultural organisations across the country. Galway’s Town Hall Theatre, which celebrated its 20th anniversary last year, has been allocated €118,000. This will enable it to commence a €250,000 upgrade (including lighting, projecting, security and access projects) as it prepares for Galway 2020. Galway City Museum has been allocated €180,000 and grants have also been awarded to Thoor Ballylee and Glenamaddy Arts & Historical Co-op Society.
