BBC News - British children are culture starved, study says
Millions of British children are "culture starved" as they have never been to an art gallery, theatre or museum, a study has claimed.
The research, commissioned by Visit Birmingham, found four in 10 children had never been to an art gallery, while a quarter of parents had never taken their offspring to the theatre.
One in five parents said they did not think their child would be interested.
The study surveyed 2,000 parents of five to 12-year-olds around the UK.
It also found 17% of children had never visited a museum, while one in 10 had not been outside their home town to visit other sites in the UK.
