The Glasgow World Championships were £8 million over budget, according to the Scottish government. The news came days after a £6.6 million cut to Scotland’s arts and culture budget were revealed, The Scotsman reported this week.
The worlds overspend amounts to nearly a quarter – 22% – of the original £36 million budget that the Scottish Government had committed to. Even this had been raised from an original £30 million government budget, while Creative Scotland is set to face a further £4 million cut.
