Researchers found that people who go to concerts live longer than those who don't. Experts looked at 6,700 British people for 15 years to see how often they went out and where they went. The over-50s who regularly went to concerts were 30 per cent less likely to die in the next 14 years. The over-50s could live longer by going to art galleries, concerts, museums, musicals, and the opera and theatre. Also, concertgoers could have more fun.

Researchers said people needed money to go to concerts. One wrote: "Over 40 per cent of people in the least wealthy group...never accessed cultural activities." They added: "Our results highlight the importance of continuing to explore new social factors that affect our health." The UK Health Secretary said the arts could improve things like mental health, ageing and loneliness. The UK will use the arts to improve people's wellbeing and health.
