'The Interdependence of Public and Private Finance in British Theatre' report published

17th November 2015

Arts Council England has published new research revealing a complex interdependence between theatre operators in the public and private sectors. They commissioned ‘The Interdependence of Public and Private Finance in British Theatre’ in partnership with Birmingham Hippodrome and the Theatre Development Trust, authored by Dr Stephen Hetherington, Honorary Fellow at the University of Exeter and Chairman of HQ Theatres Trust.

Stephen Hetherington’s report shows the complex interdependence between public and private financing of theatre production in the UK. Whilst public funding is a much smaller proportion of the overall investment in theatre, the report illustrates that it plays a critical role in enabling the artform to flourish and indirectly supports nearly every part of theatre-making in Britain.
