The Taking Part survey is a continuous face to face household survey of adults aged 16 and over in England (and children aged 5 to 15 years old). The survey provides evidence for the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) for measuring engagement with the cultural sectors in England. 

This report summarises the results from the 2019/20 adult survey and provides comparisons between London and the rest of England.

It should be noted that all of the fieldwork took place prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fieldwork was terminated before its intended end date due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. DCMS do not expect that either the pandemic or reduced fieldwork has affected the accuracy of the estimates. 

Further details of the breakdowns presented in this report can be accessed through the data tables on the Taking Part survey webpage.
