Future brighter for London’s fringe theatres as Soho Estates Director Fawn James announces capital donation

9th March 2016

The Theatres Trust is pleased to announce that Soho Estates Director Fawn James has donated £125,000 to the Theatres Trust’s London Theatres Small Grants Scheme.

The scheme was launched in Spring 2015, working with the London Mayor’s Office, to help small theatres in the city with vital capital funding. It was set up in response to the London Assembly’s ‘Centre Stage’ report into the challenges facing small theatres in London, which identified that 93% of small London theatres had yet to raise the money to carry out significant upgrade or repair to their buildings, with a direct impact on their future.

Fawn James joins Cameron Mackintosh’s Mackintosh Foundation as the second major donor to the London Theatres Small Grants Scheme.
