I would like to see the money (awarded to Southampton as a runner up to becoming City of Culture 2025) go towards opportunities for disadvantaged children to have access to big theatre productions.
Some Southampton children will never get the opportunity to see a West End show at the Mayflower Theatre, as their parents/carers could not afford that luxury. So a dedicated fund which could be used to provide free / heavily subsidised tickets to offer access for all. I feel that would be an amazing use for the money.
