‘Bloodbath’ for the arts

December 17th, 2007

Posted by Cptn

The Arts Council has been throwing its weight around throughout the country– the word ‘bloodbath‘ has been used. Odd considering its above inflation settlement from the government.

Let’s just hope the other cuts are better managed than that at the Northcott.

With a little digging maybe the Arts Council will discover the low audiences over recent months were due to the theatre’s redevelopment.

And how would they know about other changes we’ve made when we’ve had no contact with them since spring, asks the Northcott.

Artistic excellence aside, someone over there at the AC should take responsibility for the £2.1 million misdirection of funds if the theatre closes.

Check out the Save the Northcott campaign. And read the original article and comments.

    We should make it quite clear to Nick Capaldi that we will demand his resignation as the man responsible for this farce unless he reconsiders now.

    We need to lay seige to them!
