Breaking: Wales could lose its main concert hall
January 31, 2014 by Norman Lebrecht
Cardiff Council, its budgets squeezed by £50 million further cuts, says it cannot afford to maintain St David’s Hall, the nation’s main orchestral venue. The council’s chair of finance says he is seeking an outside operator to take over the hall and he’s not hopeful of finding one.
St David’s which seats 2,000, receives £1.2 million in council subsidy a year. Report here.
