Small Grants to Support Capital Improvements for UK Theatres
This capital fund awards grants of up to £5,000 to theatres across the UK run by charities and not-for-profit groups that can clearly demonstrate the value capital improvements to their theatres would make to their work in local communities.
Charities and not-for-profit groups that own or run theatres in the UK can apply for grants of up to £5,000 to fund capital improvements.
Grants can be used for projects that:
- Address urgent building repairs.
- Improve operational viability.
- Introduce environmental improvements.
- Enhance physical accessibility.
Applicants should be able to demonstrate that they run a regular theatre programme of professional, community and/or amateur work, presenting no less than 30 performances a year, and that the funded improvements will add value to the organisation’s work in the local community.
Low priority is given to applications for technical equipment and refurbishment of soft furnishings.
The next deadline for applications is 8 January 2019 (midday).
