The Statistics


The tables below show the top and bottom investors in arts, museums and heritage in England based on the figures those local authorities have provided to the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG).

The City of London is a huge supporter of the arts, museums and heritage but is unlike any other authority in the UK due to a very small resident population and because it has access to a number of additional funds.  Only two other local authorities currently invest more than 50p per person per week in arts, museums and heritage.  According to official figures, eight local authorities currently invest less than 1p.
