Edinburgh, Bucking The Trend, Decides Not To Cut Culture Funding

“Edinburgh City Council has proposed that all its cultural grants for 2014/15, including those to its festivals and theatres, will be the same as for the current year. Its recently published consultative budget lists proposed cuts across all sectors, but none in culture. This includes all festivals, such as the Edinburgh International Festival and the Fringe, as well as the city’s theatres and concert halls.”
