Please note the following: Archives are held centrally at Essex records Office which is a responsibility of Essex County Council and not Brentwood Borough Council. * Heritage was a combined Art and Heritage trail. **While Brentwood has one museum it is run by volunteers but is housed in a Council building (the amount indicated is indirect support such as Discretionary Rate Relief, printing of materials etc). Brentwood has no public gallery space. It has one theatre which is a charitable trust. The increase in 2012/13 was the introduction of a number of free community events throughout the year.
