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. From sedum roofs to new windows, building management systems to more efficient water heaters, funding will be given to projects that demonstrate how a small intervention can have a big 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
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 next round of the scheme is now open for applications with a deadline of noon on 6 September 2022.
