Live Theatre, Newcastle

I spent the morning at a seminar in Whitehall on ‘Cultural Funding in England – partnerships, income streams and policy priorities’.   Much of it was about issues of public policy.   But there was an inspiring presentation by its Chief Executive on the operation of Live Theatre, a once Marxist co-operative (maybe it is still) which occupies premises on the quayside in Newcastle and has developed a whole number of new income streams, including loans, international touring and a gastro-pub:  it made a lovely change from public sector management speak.
