Post-Apollo ceiling checks to cost UK theatres up to £15m

29th May 2015

The Theatres Trust was mentioned in an article by The Stage
Post-Apollo ceiling checks to cost UK theatres up to £15m
Theatres Trust director Mhora Samuel estimated that more than 300 listed theatres in the UK would fall under the scope of the advice. However, she added: “Many of these ceilings will also have been strengthened with wire ties and as a result will be very secure. A full nationwide survey will be needed to establish the number of theatres affected – including unlisted theatres. Those constructed from the mid-19th century to before the Second World War will be particularly affected.”

Culture Everywhere - using open data to help grassroots arts and heritage organisations make an even greater impact

27th May 2015

Culture Everywhere, a new platform that makes it quick and easy for fundraisers and grassroots arts and heritage organisations to develop fundable projects that deliver better social outcomes, has scooped a £50,000 cash prize. The cash injection comes as a reward for winning the Nesta and the Open Data Institute’s Heritage and Culture Open Data Challenge.

The new platform will help grassroots arts and heritage organisations to research, develop and evaluate funding proposals, thereby increasing their potential for success, and their capacity and capability to track impact. Currently these organisations have limited resources to invest in project development and fundraising meaning less successful bids and more frequently missed opportunities.

Organisations can sign up to register their interest in using Culture Everywhere now at cultureeverywhere.com. Early adopters will have the opportunity to help shape its development over the next few months before it becomes available more widely from Spring 2016.
