ACE Announces Investment Plans for 2015-2018

13th January 2015

The Arts Council England (ACE) has announced its funding and investment plans for the next three years.

The ACE’s new national portfolio covers a total of 670 arts organisations, down from 696. While 58 organisations will lose funding altogether, 46 new entrants to the portfolio will receive financial support over the next few years.

One of these new entrants is the National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO), which will benefit from £125,000 of funding a year for the next three years. Executive chairman of NYJO Nigel Tully welcomed the ‘fantastic news’, commenting: ‘This is crucial recognition of NYJO’s development over the recent years and its increasing artistic and educational profile. NYJO will now work enthusiastically on increasing our activity and implementing our plans – to be an evangelist for jazz and to have a greater role in the musical and cultural life of the nation.’

For the most part, organisations supported by the ACE in previous years will receive standstill funding. Performing groups in this category include the LSO, Hallé, CBSO, London Sinfionietta, BCMG, BSO, LPO, Philharmonia, OAE, Sinfonia Viva, and Manchester Camerata, as well as organisations such as Music in the Round, the National Opera Studio, British Youth Opera, classical producer SoundUK, the Tête à Tête opera festival, Streetwise Opera, and Wiltshire Music Centre.
