The Met successfully retains Arts Council England funding for the next four years

The Met is pleased to announce that its application to continue as one of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio Organisations has been successful.

The investment of £100,580 per year during 2018-22 secures the charity’s position as a key part of Bury’s culture and community, based on past work and dynamic plans for the future.

David Agnew, artistic director of The Met comments “We are thrilled to look to the future in partnership with Arts Council England to deliver great art for more people in Bury and beyond. With the building refreshed in 2016 we have ambition to reach new audiences, support and work with more artists and work to maximise the impact of this important investment.”
