Children's participation in organised cultural activities

The survey found that 29% of children aged 5-14 years (780,400 children) were involved in at least one of the four selected organised cultural activities outside of school hours in the 12 months to April 2003 . Playing a musical instrument was the most popular of the selected cultural activities (17%), followed by dancing (12%), singing (5%) and drama (4%). Girls were more than twice as likely as boys (43% compared with 17%) to participate in at least one of these activities.
