30th May 2014

The Theatres Trust is pleased to be contributing to the fourth International Theatre Engineering and Architecture Conference.

On Sunday 8 June, Mhora Samuel will be moderating the Creative Financing session at 15:50 with Steve Friedlander from Auerbach Pollock Friedlander, Judith Strong, and Jennifer Mitchell, MSc, BSc, Managing Director, Kings Place Music Foundation. This session will be looking at “How do we persuade other people to pay for new theatres to be built? We discuss examples where developers have been obliged to provide a new theatre as part of an overall building project. What are the pitfalls with this? How can we avoid these? What other cunning financial models are out there.”

On Monday 9 June, Dara Ó Briain will be making his first speaking engagement as a Trustee of The TheatresTrust at 11.20am. An occasion not to be missed!
