Nottingham and Cardiff cut funding to Playhouse and Sherman
24 March 2014
Nottinghamshire County Council confirmed last week that it will remove all of its funding for Nottingham Playhouse from April despite campaigners’ attempts to convince the local authority not to go ahead with the cut.
Just days later Cardiff Council also confirmed it will remove its entire annual funding to more than 10 arts organisations including venue Sherman Cymru and circus company Nofit State Circus as part of a budget that will save £50 million in 2014/15.
Equity has condemned both cuts and has called on members to redouble their campaigning with audiences under the banner of My Theatre Matters!
