Why art and culture matters

  • Art and culture contributes £10.6 billion to the UK economy - the UK has a creative economy worth £27bn and culture brings £850m to UK, through tourism, each year.
  • Arts and culture help tackle social injustice - theatres, museums, galleries and libraries are the beating heart of our towns and cities. Not only do they bring prosperity, they bring communities together and make life worth living.
  • Our creative industries are successful throughout the world - our leading cultural institutions are a calling card worldwide and have important trading links from the US or Germany to China and South Korea. Last year the Arts Council's National Portfolio Organisations earned £57m abroad.


We offer a varied and exciting programme of arts events and activities. We aim to entertain, inspire, educate and challenge in equal measure. Our annual programme includes film, live events, exhibitions, workshops and educational outreach for people of all ages, interests and abilities.
