Royal Shakespeare Company to take a 'hard look' at cuts
The Royal Shakespeare Company said it was going to have to take a long, hard look at next year's programme after the Arts Council announced its cuts.
Arts Council England has announced a four-year plan to cut spending, with a 7% first-year reduction for regularly funded organisations.
An RSC spokesman said based on its current Arts Council grant (£15.9m) the 6.9% equates to around £1.1m.
The Stratford-upon-Avon company said it had to work out what the cut will mean.
