Over £95k cuts to Nottingham Playhouse

nottingham-playhouseNottingham Playhouse  has spoken out against a decision by Nottinghamshire County Council to cut its annual £95k in funding.

Nottingham  Playhouse will lose £95k in funding from Nottinghamshire County Council.  Last year the venue attracted almost 20,000 visitors.   In the last 12 months, the Nottingham playhouse has welcomed  more than 5,600 school-children from the county alongside over 12,000 concessions.

Nottinghamshire county council is making £154m cuts over the next three years as part of government austerity plans.

Giles Croft, artistic director at Nottingham Playhouse said it was a shame that the council had chosen to ignore the support  of county residents.
