Grants to support theatres reopening

We've repurposed the small grants schemes in our Theatres Protection Fund to help theatres affected by the pandemic.

Theatres Trust runs the Theatres Protection Fund incorporating the UK Theatres Grants Scheme and London Small Theatres Grants Scheme.

Funding from these schemes is normally restricted to capital improvement projects and emergency repairs, but in light of the coronavirus, theatre organisations will be able to apply for grants towards adapting their buildings for reopening, in line with any new health and safety guidance.

This could include making adaptations for increased hygiene and social distancing measures.

We already have some funding in place from our existing donors for these schemes, but as demand for this support will be high, this is our current fundraising priority and any donations we receive will go towards this.
