Creative Scotland announces 2018-2021 Regular Funding Portfolio

Today, 25 January, Creative Scotland announced the network of organisations that will receive Regular Funding for the three-year period, April 2018 to March 2021, following the conclusion of an open application process.

The Regular Funding Network 2018-21 consists of 116 organisations, of which 19 are new and 97 continue with three-year funding.

The largest changes that will affect theatres are that the new Perth Theatre, as it restarts operation, and Dundee Rep will receive significant funding increases, while the Ayr Gaiety and Edinburgh Festival and Kings Theatres will no longer receive regular funding from Creative Scotland.

Theatres often operate on a very narrow margin and even relatively small changes in the funding situation has immediate impact on the theatre. Theatres Trust can support building based theatre organisations who need assistance with adapting their business plans.

Regular Funding is one of three routes to funding through Creative Scotland, alongside Open Project Funding for individuals and organisations, and Targeted Funding. See more details of the network of Regularly Funded Organisations and other routes to funding.
