Bursary places at Conference 21 for small theatres

Thanks to the generous support of Equity, we are able to offer a limited number of free places at our upcoming conference.

The theme of this year's conference is Making Theatre Sustainable, an issue that it is vital that theatres of all sizes address.

Equity has kindly sponsored this bursary scheme, which will enable some small theatres to join this important discussion who might otherwise not be able to attend.

Small theatres are defined as those with less than 10 full time permanent employees and not in receipt of regular funding.

How to apply

Complete the simple application form and return it to us at events@theatrestrust.org.uk along with your CV by noon on Thursday 21 October. Note we have extended the deadline from the original date of 13 October.

To broaden participation across the country, we are also able to offer a contribution towards travel / accommodation expenses for successful applicants travelling from outside of Greater London. This would cover standard fares (not first class) and receipts would need to be provided to be reimbursed.

Bursary places are limited to one per organisation.
