Hundreds of arts organisations miss out on funding

More than 200 organisations that received regular funding from Arts Council England have missed out after "a series of painful decisions".

About 1,300 venues, theatres, galleries and arts groups applied for grants from the council, which had its budget cut by £100m in October's Spending Review.

Some 695 groups will get funding for 2012 to 2015 - down from 849 - while 110 new groups have been successful.

Alan Davey, Chief Executive of Arts Council England, has told the BBC that the announcement will reveal the core funding they will provide for arts organisations over the next three years.
