The Albany escapes major arts funding cuts

The Albany theatre in Deptford has been awarded funding from the Arts Council England which should help to secure its future for the next four years.

In total, more than 200 arts institutions across the country have lost central funding from Arts Council England for the period between 2012-2015. The Albany is one of the 695 organisations that successfully secured a grant, with an inflation-adjusted cut of only 2.9% over the period.

In BC's experience, The Albany is an outstanding venue that makes an important contribution to Deptford's cultural landscape and well-deserves its cash.
