Arts and Culture Sector

The UK’s position as a leading cultural destination continues unabated, creating enormous opportunities for the organisations that operate in the sector.

But there are challenges too, as changes in funding models and shifting demands from the paying public mean operators need to continually innovate if their offer is to remain relevant.

The historic properties that often feature in the sector create their own challenges, as operators seek to ensure their estate remains fit for purpose in changing times. Our arts and culture team marries an understanding of these unique real estate assets – such as theatres and galleries – with an unrivalled appreciation of the underlying business models. In this way, we provide advice that truly reflects your needs.

Our clients include: British Library, Royal Opera House, Royal Academy, Royal Albert Hall, Southbank Centre, and Museum of London.

  • Supporting Cultural Production


    We understand that culture and art is the lifeblood of a dynamic society and cultural buildings, structures and sites have an innate way of telling stories, entertaining and celebrating while providing insight into the future. Historical sites and cultural destinations help to define who we are as a society and provide educational value, helping individuals see the world through the lens of other cultures. With audiences, amateurs, donors and investors, we are able to turn these historical assets into opportunities for growth, regeneration and development in regions.

  • The economic and social benefits of cultural property and production

    In addition to providing intrinsic value, cultural buildings and cultural development offers economic and social benefits to society, assisting in learning and education and increasing inclusivity for communities and individuals. 


    By participating in culture, individuals are given deeply personal benefits as these assets delight and wonder by providing moving and memorable experiences for those who enter the space. Cultural property also encourages expression and has the power to enhance a community’s place in the world. 


    By investing in cultural experiences, assets and properties, communities are investing in opportunities for learning, entertainment and leisure – inviting greater activities in the area and inviting tourists and others to participate in the experience. With the development and management of galleries, libraries, theatres and museums – communities and cities are able to bring people together and grow the economy at the same time.

  • Improving valuable skill and learning with cultural property and production

    When it comes to the youth, cultural participation is vital in the development of self-esteem and knowledge, enhancing educational outcomes and opportunities. 


    We know that community hubs and centres of knowledge such as public libraries and museums, play a massive role in expanding educational opportunities and these properties play an important role in bridging the digital and financial divide, supporting continued learning. For example, library initiatives have the power to improve cognitive skills and literacy in the youth.

  • Improving mental and physical health with cultural property and production

    By developing spaces in the arts and culture sector, the community is given the opportunity to learn and grow in an encouraging way – improving both mental and physical health. This leads to the development of integrating culture into health care in the UK.


    Research has shown that the arts can improve the well-being of any individual and can help those living in isolation, promoting identity formation. This is particularly important for older individuals.
