Budget cuts for the arts

Around 200 hundred organization’s will not receiving their funding due to heavy cuts from the Arts Council. A total £100 million has been cut from the budget, but the government will adding an extra £80 million in 2013. Local companies Leeds company Northern Ballet has had its funding cut by a quarter, about £800,000. From whats been posted around on the internet it seems that not all government cuts have been fair, with the arts losing out quite a bit. Lets hope the future hold something a bit better for us.
