Established in 1946, Arts Council England champions, develops and invests in artistic and cultural experiences that enrich people’s lives. It looks to grow skills, knowledge and networks to help establish the conditions in which creativity and culture can flourish across the country.

Arts Council England is the national development agency for creativity and culture. By 2030 it looks for England to be a country in which the creativity of individual is valued and given the chance to flourish, and where everyone has access to a remarkable range of high quality cultural experiences.

Between 2018 and 2022, it will invest £1.45 billion of public money from government and an estimated £860 million from the National Lottery to help deliver this vision.

Cheshire Dance is a National Portfolio Organisation of Arts Council England.

We believe that great art and culture inspires us, brings us together and teaches us about ourselves and the world around us. In short, it makes life better.
