[act] update. As you may have seen in the local press, there has been a cut to ADeC’s core funding from East Cambridgeshire District Council. In addition, Fenland, South Cambs and Huntingdon District Council have all cut their core funding for the [act] scheme. Whilst certainly in the short term this means we cannot put out a Spring/Summer menu and need to put the scheme on hold, we would hope that all the hard work the promoters over the years will not be lost. Indeed, we are hoping an informal consortium could be created so that the promoters may book acts as independent venues to take advantage of group rates.
We would hope that the arts funding landscape will improve in the future but in the meantime hope that the spirit of the scheme can continue locally. If in the meantime you have any queries please contact the ADEC office on 01353 616991.
