Theatres Trust Annual Report 21

We’ve just published our review of the year up until the end of March 2021.

The Covid 19 pandemic meant 2020-21 was a year of unprecedented challenge for theatres and Theatres Trust’s work had to flex quickly, creating a new one-year plan for 20/21 focusing on advocacy and support for theatres in crisis and providing additional advice to theatres and other stakeholders, alongside maintaining core and statutory activities.  

The Annual Report provides a financial review of the year and looks at our achievements and performance in 2020/21 against our three main priorities:

  • Advice and planning
  • Campaigning
  • Grant giving
