London’s Cultural Infrastructure Plan is a game-changer. For the first time it sets out what we need to do to protect and grow our cultural facilities.
London is a city recognised as the global capital for arts and culture. Our theatres, music venues, museums and galleries are renowned across the world. Our creative industries are vital to London’s success and the recording studios, rehearsal spaces, artists' workspaces are the engine room that is responsible for generating £52 billion per year.
However, there has been a worrying decline in London’s cultural spaces, with the numbers of LGBT+ venues and grassroots music venues stabilising in the last year following a decade of decline.
