The ҹѰ has given three new grants to continue its support of the Arts in London. The Foundation furthers its mission of supporting education, communities, and the pursuit of knowledge through multi-year grants to Tate, the Royal Opera House, and London Symphony Orchestra.  

The Foundation is pleased to continue its support of London-based art organisations as they face numerous challenges including the ongoing impact of the pandemic, rising energy prices and Arts Council funding cuts. It will be sponsoring a total of six performances at the Royal Opera House over two seasons with a multi-year year grant of £300,000, and six concerts at the London Symphony Orchestra with a grant of £200,000 for two seasons.
