“As a touring standup comedian I have travelled up and down this country and worked in many of the theatres here and you have a unique and rich heritage of theatres that were built in the last 200 years. But we can’t take that for granted. Local community support is vital in breathing new life into theatres. If a theatre in your community was in danger of being lost forever would you help fight for it? There are 36 theatres all over the country on our Register at the moment. Please join the campaign to save them or make a donation.”

Theatres Trust Trustee, Dara Ó Briain

Alexandra Palace Theatre - 2013 Theatre Building at Risk

The Theatre Buildings at Risk (TBAR) register is the Trust’s means of watching, managing and supporting theatre buildings under threat across the UK.

Now in its tenth year, the register reflects growing public interest in theatres and the built environment, and a wider acknowledgement of the importance of theatre buildings within local communities.

Unlike the Risk Registers compiled by other organisations, TBAR covers England, Scotland and Wales and includes all types of theatre building, whether statutory listed, in a Conservation Area, or not listed. This means the Trust can monitor and highlight theatres which are under threat but not afforded any statutory protection. The buildings may be currently in theatre use, in other (permanent or temporary) uses, vacant or derelict.

All theatres on the register form part of our casework year-round, and a theatre may be added to the register at any time. Once a year the register is completely reviewed and revised and its results published.
