Our Funders

We work with theatres of all sizes around the country, ensuring they can provide welcoming spaces for their audiences to enjoy performances and take part in activities.

We do this through our regular case work to provide advice on the design, planning, development and sustainability of theatres, by campaigning on behalf of theatres old and new and offering financial assistance through grants.

All of this work is only possible thanks to the generosity of our public funders, trusts and foundations, Patrons, Corporate Supporters, Friends, bucket collections throughout London theatres and events/project sponsors.
