Message from Nicholas Hytner to NT supporters re: Arts Council cuts

Dear Mrs Patel

As you may know, today the Arts Council has announced its funding plans for the three years from April 2012. The result for the National Theatre is a cut in real terms of 14.9% over the next four years.

The National Theatre has no argument with the Arts Council. We recognise the pressing need to support organisations less well funded than we are, so a 14.9% cut seems to us like a sensible decision in the circumstances.

What it does mean, of course, is that we will be counting on our supporters more than ever and I sincerely thank you for the commitment that you have shown to our work to date. I hope that we can count on your continued generosity.

Nicholas Hytner

YES - The National can count on my continued generosity!
