The Public Campaign for the Arts (PCA) launched a petition in January after the authority set out its budget plans.

Nearly 5,000 people signed the petition and 1,800 people responded to the authority’s consultation …

Campaign director Jack Gamble said: “Windsor and Maidenhead’s arts centres were facing a 100% cut – today they’re facing a 17% increase in support from the council.

“Thank you to everybody who has been a part of our campaign, and to the council for listening to residents’ concerns.”
