Samuel West - Theatre - Arts Council

* updated 13 February

Sam attended a meeting that was organised by Equity regarding the Arts Council's cuts to theatre funding. Here's a quote from thisisnottingham.co.uk:
"...Samuel West stated: 'Cut funding to our smaller spaces and you eventually starve our larger ones to death...'"
