Live music a major part of the creative boom

18 December 2018

NEW FIGURES produced by the government revealed a significant growth for Britain’s creative industries, which also include music, film, TV and advertising,

The report says the sector was worth £101.5 billion in 2017, up from £94.8 billion in 2016.

“Our creative industries not only fly the flag for the best of British creativity at home and abroad but they are also at the heart of our economy,” says secretary of state for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Jeremy Wright.

“Today they have broken the £100bn mark and continue on a hugely positive upward trajectory, outperforming the wider UK economy. We’re doing all we can to support the sector’s talent and entrepreneurship as we build a Britain that is fit for the future.”
