The government does not systematically collect data on theatre closures across the country due to the devolved nature of cultural policy and the breadth of operating models in the sector.

The government is committed to ensuring our world class theatre sector continues to thrive across the country and that is why Arts Council England is investing over £100 million of public money into 190 theatres and touring companies over four years.
