Funding for Repair and Conservation Projects in Victorian Theatres

Registered charities and other not-for-profit organisations can apply for funding to conduct discreet and vital repairs or conservation projects in listed Victorian theatres built between 1837 and 1910.

The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation is offering grants of up to £15,000 to support capital repair and conservation works in listed Victorian Theatres across the United Kingdom. The Victorian Theatres Small Repairs Fund will enable groups to deliver capital works with a vital, urgent, and/or historical significance to help list theatres thrive as cultural, heritage, and community assets.

Eligible theatres must:

  • Have been built between 1837 and 1910.
  • Be listed as follows:
    • Grade I, Grade II, or Grade II (England and Wales).
    • A, B, or C (Scotland).
    • A, B+, B, B1, or B2 (Northern Ireland).
  • Be owned by a charity or a not-for-profit organisation.
  • Be an active theatre or one where it can be demonstrated that the project will be vital to the re-opening of the theatre.

Priority will be given to vital repair projects that would otherwise struggle to raise funds, and theatres where the programme of performing arts activity includes or will include a focus on encouraging social, economic, and cultural diversity in the arts.

There is a two-stage application process. Applicants should register their interest with the Foundation before being invited to submit a full application.

The deadline to register interest with the Foundation is 15 March 2022.
