The UK Theatres Small Grants Scheme is a capital fund that awards up to £5,000 to theatres across the UK run by charities and not-for-profit groups that can clearly demonstrate the value capital improvements to their theatres would make to their work in local communities.
Priorities include projects that address urgent building repairs, improve operational viability, introduce environmental improvements, and enhance physical accessibility. Please note that applications for technical equipment and refurbishment of soft furnishings are a low priority for the scheme.
Funds are generally awarded where they are considered to have the most impact in realising an applicant’s capital project.
The UK Theatres Small Grants Scheme was launched with funding from the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation and Judy Craymer MBE.
With continued support from the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation and the Charles Michael Holloway Trust the scheme has been extended to 2020.
