Since 2011, Britian has had no International Theatre Institute, despite being one of the eight founding members of the International Theatre Institute, an organisation which was created to promote international collaboration and theatre and which is the world's largest organisation for the performing arts and has 90 centres spread across every continent.
As such, Britain also plays no official role on World Theatre Day.
Creating a British World Theatre Centre is an important task - to address this, encourage collaboration and new ideas, maintain Britain's reputation for world leading theatre and maintain British theatre as an area contributing millions to the British economy each year, for example according to figures published in 2015 by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), the UK's Creative Industries, including performing arts, are now worth £76.9 billion per year to the UK economy.
