Theatres advised by Theatres Trust to receive Stage One Arts Council England Capital funding

7th January 2016

Six theatres are among sixteen arts organisations whose capital projects will be funded by the Arts Council England’s Large Capital Grants Scheme, announced today.

The Theatres Trust is providing capital planning advice to many of the successful theatres, including the Octagon Theatre, Bolton, the Royal Court in Liverpool, and Polka Theatre, Wimbledon.

A number of these theatres have participated in our capital project workshop programme, and we supported the Octagon Theatre by providing a peer-based Advisory Review of their proposals.

Successful applicants now have up to eighteen months to develop full Stage Two applications, and funding of £57 million will be available if they are successful.

Mhora Samuel, Director of The Theatres Trust, said “It is great to see such high quality theatre projects included in this funding round. We have already been in touch with all successful applicants to offer our congratulations and continue to offer our advice, encouragement and support.”
