The Wyndham Report

The Wyndham Report (1998) was commissioned by Society of London Theatre, researched by MORI and written by Tony Travers of The London School of Economics. The brief for the report was to provide a detailed analysis of the effect of the London theatre industry on the nation's economy. The report reveals the West End theatre industry as an economic powerhouse, bolstering the UK economy with thousands of jobs and millions of pounds of tourist and industry spending, whilst creating significant tax yields and a major balance of payments surplus.

After Wyndham

A year on from the publication of the Wyndham Report, the Society published an update on the issues and debates that have arisen in response to the report: After Wyndham – Key issues in London Theatre (November 1999) in pdf format.
