It has been reported that Soho Theatre’s young people’s programmes, English National Ballet’s older people’s schemes and community and youth arts services from Paddington Arts, Dream Arts, Westminster Mind and Streetwise Opera will all be affected, along with around ten other arts initiatives.

The cuts were confirmed at a council meeting on 6 March.
