Government’s support for theatres

The Government’s £1.57 billion investment in protecting our arts, culture and heritage is a really positive shift forward.

Theatre Peckham’s future is dependent on the government recognising the benefit of the grassroots venues, artists and freelancers that make the sector what it is. Theatre is not just about shows, it includes the creative classes for children, youth theatre, community work and development programmes that ignite imaginations and inspire creativity.

This investment must look for lasting change and this can only be achievable if the foundations are anchored in communities.
