Tees Valley is one of the areas set to benefit from a new, four-year funding round by Arts Council England.

Arts Council England announced that it will invest an extra £170m outside of London between 2018 and 2022.

The Royal Opera House, Southbank Centre, National Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company are having their funding cut as a result of a new Arts Council settlement which will see more money go outside London.

Other areas set to benefit include Plymouth, Bradford, Luton and Stoke-on-Trent.
