Book of Kells revenue down 77%

Revenues generated by the Book of Kells exhibition at Dublin's Trinity College decreased by 77% last year.bookofkells

 A spokesperson said that revenues generated by the Book of Kells exhibition amounted to €2.9 million last year, which was a €9.8 million, or 77%, decrease from the €12.7 million that the exhibition generated in revenues the previous year.
The decrease in revenues was the result of a significant decrease in the number of people who visited the Book of Kells last year.
The number of people who visited the Book of Kells decreased by more than 70% to 296,058 during the twelve month period that ended on September 30, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Book of Kells exhibition closed on March 10, 2020, due to the pandemic before reopening on a limited basis on August 10 and subsequently closing again on September 19.
At the time of the exhibition's closure on March 10, 2020, 291,280 people had visited it during the year to that date.
Just 4,778 people visited the exhibition between August 10 and September 19 of last year due to a combination of a restricted reopening and a lack of overseas visitors.
