Arts Council England (ACE) considers investing in commercial touring theatre

6th August 2015

Mhora Samuel, Director of The Theatres Trust, has been quoted in The Stage.

ACE is considering branching out into commercial theatre investment in a bid to help support the UK’s struggling touring market. This is one of a range of recommendations in a new report co-commissioned by ACE and UK Theatre.
The report Theatre Touring in the 21st Century – An Exploration of New Financial Models recommendations also include asking arts companies to link up to create consortiums, and coming together to “co-exist” in buildings.

This has been welcomed by Theatres Trust director Mhora Samuel, who said arts funders “must support consortiums of producers and theatres to act as investors and improve the exchange of information and knowledge about audiences and productions”
“Funders’ roles should be to invest in the capacity of consortia to create, commission and adopt some of the financial models suggested in the report,” she said.
