Theatre Operators can apply for grants of up to £20,000 to improve the environmental sustainability of their theatres.
The Theatre Improvement Scheme can support a range of projects that consider different ways theatre buildings can reduce their environmental impact. This might range from building management systems to more efficient water heaters, or a green roof to new windows.
To be eligible to apply to the scheme, applicants must demonstrate that they:
- own or manage theatres with titles or signed leases of more than 5 years on buildings in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland
- run a year-round programme of live performance, of no less than 30 performances a year
- have a bona fide UK charitable or not-for-profit legal structure and be able to provide certified or audited accounts for at least two years
- operate theatres that achieve excellence through their producing and programming or architectural significance
The funding is being made available through the Theatres Trust in partnership with the Wolfson Foundation and the closing date for applications is 12 noon on the 6th September 2021.
