Regional theatres have been in the news today, as their Artistic Directors met at the National Theatre to discuss how they can promote themselves and flag to the government (both local and national) that economic cuts will hurt not just theatres but communities, culture and the economy.

Danny Boyle has been on many radios and TV programmes today flying the flag, here’s him being interviewed :

A fuller interview was on Radio 4’s Front Row tonight, which will soon be available as a podcast.

Let’s hope local and national governments listen to the compelling arguments offered.
