GUEST,Cats Arts Council (UK) stopping funding folk? (91* d) RE: Arts Council (UK) stopping funding folk? 22 Jan 08

On last nights local TV there was an article about over 26,000 signatures having been received to help save the funding for the Northcott Theatre in Exeter. The local MP said he had had more letters and e mail about that than anything else in the 11 years he had been the MP. Again the reason for not givng funding seems to be 'the Quality' but no one will say what the quality threshold is. Perhaps we shopuld all contact our MP's and MEP's about the cutting back of Folk Funding from the Arts Council perhaps they might get more e mails and letters about that then anything else. Remember, you can contact the MP for an area if you live, work or use the services in that area. There are loads of MP's in the South West for a start....
