Grosvenor Road Studios Awarded Funding through Arts Council England’s Capital Investment Programme

  • Grosvenor Road Studios in Birmingham to benefit from a share of £24.2 million through Arts Council England’s Capital Investment Programme 

  • Awards from Arts Council England’s Capital Investment Programme go towards building works and the purchase of equipment and other assets to improve access, seize on technological opportunities and reduce environmental impact.

Grosvenor Road Studios will receive £164,500 from Arts Council England, thanks to its Government-funded Capital Investment Programme, as announced today.

This funding will enable us to continue providing high quality creative and cultural experiences for people in Birmingham.

Grosvenor Road Studios boasts one of the largest recording studios in the West Midlands as well as a workspace of seven offices for creative, cultural and community businesses, a centre for arts training and development, a hub for arts and community development, and a woodland garden for local children and their families.

The Capital Investment Programme supports the Arts Council’s mission to ensure communities across the country have the infrastructure where creativity for everyone can thrive.  

Peter Knott, Midlands Area Director at Arts Council England said:

“Our Capital funding is an investment in buildings and equipment that organisations need to deliver great art and culture in their communities.


“We’re delighted to award Grosvenor Road Studios £164,500 to make improvements to their building and update their digital recording equipment. This will give community users and emerging talent access to excellent, high quality and industry-leading recording technology on their doorstep. It will also attract professional artists from across the city and beyond, helping to build on their legacy for working with, and nurturing, generations of talent.”

Darren Henley, Chief Executive, Arts Council England said: “This infrastructure investment will help a whole range of different cultural organisations across England to flourish, increasing opportunities for people to enjoy creatively excellent cultural events close to where they live. It’s particularly important that we’re making this happen in communities where cultural investment has historically been low”. 

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay, Minister for Arts, Heritage and Libraries, said: “Cultural venues enrich our lives, and it’s vital that their infrastructure matches the excellence of the creative work that goes on inside them. 


"Our funding is helping both to create new venues and to adapt existing ones to make them more accessible, helping to deliver the Government’s plan to make sure that everyone, no matter where they live or what their background, has access to excellent, life-changing cultural opportunities.”
