Theatres at Risk Capacity Building Programme Year 2 recipients

We are delighted to announce details of the six theatres that will receive a total of £67,500 worth of support.

Following the success of the pilot scheme, we are pleased to be able to provide to six more theatres this year:

  • Brighton Hippodrome
  • Derby Hippodrome
  • Granada, Walthamstow
  • Groundlings Theatre, Portsmouth
  • Leith Theatre
  • Streatham Hill Theatre

The programme is designed to support theatres on our Theatres at Risk Register to commission expert advice and acquire the skills and knowledge to push forward capital projects to help save their theatres. Alongside the grant, each theatre will receive support from the Theatres Trust’s advice team.

This round of funding will support projects ranging from governance support to viability studies. The theatres are all on the Theatres at Risk Register 2020 as announced in January 2020 but are at various stages in their journey to restoration and revival. 

Thanks to our funders Historic England, The Pilgrim Trust and Swire Charitable Trust for their continued support of this scheme.
