Campaign for the Arts director Jack Gamble said: “It is very concerning to see a slowdown in returning audiences for many art forms, just as energy bills and production costs are rocketing. After a decade of funding cuts and a devastating pandemic, the cultural sector simply cannot afford another crisis. This is a time to come together in support of the arts, and in defence of the benefits they provide to so many people and communities.”
