London Councils axed its entire £3 million financial support for the Arts

MLA's News Update for London’s Museums 11/01/2011 reports: London Councils to cull capital’s £3m arts support budget London Councils is to axe its entire £3 million financial support for the arts across the capital. Theatre companies that will be affected include Theatre Royal Stratford East, Tamasha Theatre Company, the Tricycle Theatre and Clean Break. The umbrella body for local authorities in the capital, London Councils raises money from individual boroughs which is then allocated to voluntary sector projects across the city. It currently spends £3.14 million a year on provision related to culture, tourism and the 2012 Olympics. London Councils’ new list of strategic priorities will result in the majority of the cultural services it supports losing all of their funding by the end of June 2011. Projects that will cease next summer include the promotion of access to cultural activities across the city, on which London Councils currently spends £1 million per annum. Another

Oldest Structure in London found at Vauxhall

The THAMES DISCOVERY PROGRAMME TEAM report: 'The OLDEST STRUCTURE in LONDON Archaeologists from the UCL-based THAMES DISCOVERY PROGRAMME have just announced the discovery of the oldest structure yet discovered in London. They have found a group of 6,000-year-old wooden piles on the open foreshore near Vauxhall Bridge, only revealed at very low spring tides. They have only just been exposed by increased tidal scour over the last two or three years. Radiocarbon samples from the piles have returned dates of between 4792-4610 cal BC; 4690-4490 cal BC and 4720-4540 cal BC. River levels were much lower at this period, and thus the structure (or structures) were probably built on dry land. The site lies in the shadow of the MI6 building, and thus access is not always easy. A Mesolithic flint tranchet adze has also been recovered from the area, in addition to later Neolithic pottery and fire-cracked flints. The site is only a 100m from the Late Bronze Age pile-built 'bridge' or
