The Participation survey is the new flagship survey by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

It is designed to provide a central, reliable evidence source that can be used to analyse cultural, digital and sporting engagement of adults aged 16 and over in England.

Fieldwork involving over 8,000 people has been conducted quarterly since October 2021.

This report, published by Campaign for the Arts and Data Culture Change, analyses attendance at arts events using the first full year of Participation survey fieldwork (October 2021 to September 2022).
