Supporting the arts nationally vis a vis locally

Yes, the bigger picture impinges directly on what happens in Frome. The Olympics have already and will continue to suck the sap out of wider cultural endeavour unless we make a determined case and fight the cuts. But we can do a lot at a personal level too - just by going out more, turning up to things, being part of the audience, and its already evident that advance ticket sales for some of the less high profile Frome Festival events, for example, are very worryingly low. Get out there, jump the rut, try something new!
