The Creative Industries are one of the UK’s greatest success stories, growing twice as fast as the economy as a whole, contributing £92bn to the economy and accounting for two million jobs.

The Government continues to work closely with stakeholders from across the Creative Industries to fully understand the potential impacts and opportunities presented by our decision to leave the EU.

These sectors play an important role in showing the world the very best of Britain, strengthening global relationships and demonstrating that we are open for business.
