22/23 Annual Reporting to Arts Council England using the Audience Finder Data Tools

NPOs are required to submit an Annual Report generated from Audience Finder Answers and/or an Annual Summary from Audience Finder Show Stats for touring companies, unless you have an agreed exemption in place. The reporting period covers performances/attendances during the 2022/23 financial year. If you have not yet set up a 2022/23 Audience Finder survey, we recommend you do so now to begin collecting data. The final deadline for setting up new survey, of any collection methodology, for data collection for 2022/23 is the 31st March 2023.

Once collected, the data should be uploaded to the Audience Finder Data Tools as soon as possible following the end of the funded period. If you are looking to submit external survey data not collected through an Audience Finder survey, the final date for you to upload data this data will be 5th May 2023.

We request that you download and submit your 2022/23 Annual Report and/or Annual Summary to NPO.data@artscouncil.org.uk no later than 31 May 2023.

If you have any issues collecting data or creating your final report/s, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Audience Finder service team who will be able to support you. We also have an Onboarding Live event detailing this process on 19th January 2023, available to all NPOs.
