The issue of Norden Farm’s funding had attracted the interest of national group Public Campaign for the Arts, and its director, Jack Gamble, has reacted to the latest developments.
“We welcome RBWM’s engagement with Norden Farm, and hope they are also considering how to maintain support for The Old Court and Windsor Festival,” he said.
“In response to the budget consultation, over 1,000 people said continued investment in arts and culture should be a priority for the council. No other issue had even half as much support. The council said it would listen to residents’ views and we hope they will now do so by continuing their grant funding of the arts.”
