National Theatre: Making Theatre Green

A year of working with the Theatre Green Book
Monday 6 June 2022, 11am-4.30pm, Olivier Theatre, Dorfman Theatre and online

We all know we need to act on the climate crisis. One year after the release of the Theatre Green Book, we’re pausing to reflecting on how far the industry has come, check where we’re all heading and rally for the next stage. Voices from across the theatre landscape will discuss what’s working, what isn’t, and how we can continue to change together.

The day will feature panels on artistic opportunity and provocation, production practice and data, product presentations from innovative suppliers, and reflections on using the Theatre Green Book and other global initiatives. It is a space to make connections, share ideas and think outside the box.

This is a free event, registration is required.

Theatre Improvement Scheme: Up to £20,000 funding for improving Environmental Sustainability

Theatres Trust's Theatre Improvement Scheme, in association with the Wolfson Foundation, offers capital funding for theatres.

The theme for the fund for the next three years is Improving Environmental Sustainability as this is an urgent priority for the sector.

Theatre operators can apply for grants of up to £20,000 towards their building or equipment as part of the scheme.

It is hoped that these grants will support a range of projects that consider different ways theatre buildings can reduce their environmental impact.

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
