Save our theatres
The importance of saving British theatres during lockdown is not just for the employees on those theatres' payrolls. It is also for the hundreds of thousands of freelancers working in and around the performing arts. Additionally, it is for the hundreds of thousands more who come to the theatre, either as members of the audience or as participants in the many programmes so many theatres run. I strongly believe in the value of government financial support to save the arts in the UK.
