TBAR Theatre Buildings at Risk
Developed over several years, 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.
