The UK will give $2 billion to help its arts industry. This will help theatres, concert halls, galleries, museums and other venues. It will help actors, writers, composers, make-up artists and staff with no jobs because of the coronavirus. The money will help important cultural organisations "hit hard by the pandemic".
The UK is world famous for arts. Millions of tourists go to see the UK's plays, musicals, exhibitions and concerts. The arts are "the beating heart" of the UK. The UK said: "Our arts and culture are the soul of our nation. They make our country great. They are the centre of our world-beating and fast growing creative industries."
