London faces cultural ruin without support: A joint letter to the Culture Secretary

26 Jan 2021

London Property Alliance has joined other organisations and businesses in signing a Heart of London Business Alliance (HOLBA) letter to the Culture Secretary calling for an extension of the Theatre Tax Relief Scheme; VAT cuts for arts, cultural and hospitality businesses; a Government-backed insurance scheme for theatre, arts and cultural institutions; and grant funding to help make cultural venues Covid-19 secure.

The letter received coverage from EG (£) and FT (£).
