“Creative talent and the opportunity for economic growth can be found across the country, not just in London and the South-East,” said Creative England CEO Caroline Norbury.
"And the impact of creative technology, ideas and innovation is not just being felt in film, television and video games – it crosses boundaries into healthcare, education and even car insurance.
"The successes of the Creative England 50, from Newcastle to Plymouth, are proof that the creative economy is where long term prosperity lies.”
