SAVE THE ARTS - AN APPEAL BY THE SOCIETY OF LONDON THEATRE

Nica Burns, President of the Society of London Theatre releases statement in support of the arts.

Dear Theatregoer,

As I am sure you are aware, the Government will shortly be announcing its plans for cuts to the arts subsidy. In these difficult times we understand there must indeed be cuts. As an industry, the arts receive a small amount of subsidy which is returned to the Treasury in VAT, NI, jobs and tourist income.

We want to ensure that the government is sufficiently well informed so that cuts can be made without long lasting, terminal damage to a very successful industry.

Please support us by signing the online petition which, if it reaches 100,000 signatures will trigger a debate in Parliament so we can talk directly to the Government and safeguard our future.

Thank you so much for your help.

Save the Arts: we need 100,000 signatures by October 20 so sign up today at  http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/save-the-arts.html

Many thanks

Nica Burns
President
The Society of London Theatre (SOLT)
