They say the arts and entertainment industries are largely confined to the capital – and to an extent they’d be right. However, more and more expansion is happening away from the south, as more and more investment is taking place hundreds of miles outside of the centre of London and spreading to the north of England and beyond.
To many, the idea of going to see a West End show is not only a special afternoon or evening out, but often seen as a pastime for the well-off. As theatre lovers will attest, the industry has drastically altered over the years and has, in recent times, become far more accessible to everyone, no matter your income, age or social class.
