Northern Ballet - success of fundraising schemes


Recommended Posts

The BBC news website reports very positive news about the success of the recent fundraising schemes by Northern Ballet which were driven by the drastic cuts to their funding. The article reports that rather than reducing their dancer head count from 40 to 30 as planned, they are actually increasing to 42 having raised £450,000. An amazing achievement in the current econmic climate.

Absolutely true Janet - whilst jobs may be secured for the next year, the chances of Northern Ballet being able to raise that sort of money on an ongoing basis is very unlikely.

 

My biggest concern is that now that they have managed to do this once, the Arts Council will look at Northern Ballet and say they don't NEED the funding because they have can raise the funds privately.
