Example text

As might be expected, there is a greater concentration of theatre buildings in London than anywhere else. The 1988/89 British Theatre Directory, edited by A. Holland, lists ninety-six in Greater London, of which around fifty are situated in the West End, the heart of commercial theatre. London also houses the two 'national' companies, the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) at the Barbican, and the Royal National Theatre on the South Bank. The Directory lists f<;>ur hundred and eightyfive theatres in other regions of the country, as well as another thirty-six small clubs and lunchtime theatres in London.

The extent of consumer expenditure on Entertainment and the Arts puts into perspective funding by the State, estimated at around £819 million in total in 1986/87. Nevertheless, even though State funding of the Arts in the UK is per capita lower than in most other European countries there are many cultural organisations that depend upon it for their existence. State support also has a symbolic dimension to it, bringing with it prestige, and even a suggestion that the activities supported are of a superior value to those that are not.

There are few concert halls that specialise exclusively in one form of music. The Barbican, home of the London Symphony Orchestra, not only promotes classical concerts, pop music, and light entertainment, but also doubles as a conference centre. The three venues of the South Bank Centre - the Royal Festival Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, and the Purcell Room - all present mixed musical programmes. The Royal Festival Hall also presents some opera and ballet, and the Queen Elizabeth Hall is occasionally used for drama.
