Culture Lottery – Ten Years Of Good Work

“In England, £1.86bn of lottery money has been pumped into the arts over the past decade, £1.3bn of which has been capital investment to create 100 new venues and refurbish 500 others. The arts councils in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have disbursed another £400m, and the UK film industry has received over £100m. The arts – museums in particular – have also been able to tap into huge amounts of cash from the millennium fund and heritage fund, taking the investment into the stratosphere. No wonder Arts Council England (ACE) wants to blow its own trumpet.”
