We promote the better protection of theatre buildings to protect the future of live theatre
Theatres Trust 40 | On 22 July 2016 we celebrated 40 years of the Theatres Trust Act which made us a consultee in the planning system, and gave us our remit to protect theatres for everyone!
We promote the quality and design of existing and new theatres, We protect important historic theatres so that they can be used as theatres in the future. We make sure theatre buildings meet the needs and demands of the theatre industry and audiences
We do all this because we believe that the experience of live theatre in people’s lives contributes to our well-being and leads to a fairer, informed, more generous, and understanding society*
