UK Government gives £1 million to artist agents
You may well wonder why, in the third wave of the pandemic, Arts Council England and the Department of Culture have decided to bale out a bunch of ten-percenters.
Here’s the list of agency beneficiaries in the Easter round of alms-giving from the Culture Recovery Fund:
ASKONAS HOLT LTD (line 114): £441,000
HARRISON/PARROTT LTD (line 781): £375,000
IKON ARTS MANAGEMENT LTD (line 847): £35,000
INTERMUSICA ARTISTS MANAGEMENT LTD (line 884): £99,000
RAYFIELD ALLIED LTD (line 1487): £109,000
HP has been given exactly ten times as much as a leading period-instrument orchestra.
The top two agencies are 88th and 126th in a list of 2272 recipients.
