UK Theatres Grants Scheme

Back to funding directory

The UK Theatres Small Grants Scheme has been extended to 2020 and offers capital grants of up to £5,000 to theatres that are run by charities and not-for-profit groups across the UK which can clearly demonstrate that the capital improvements will add value to their work in their local communities.

The grants can be used for small capital projects that address urgent building repairs, improve operational viability, introduce environmental improvements, and enhance physical accessibility.

To be eligible, groups must:

  • Own or manage theatres with titles or signed leases of more than 5 years on buildings in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
  • Demonstrate that they run a regular theatre programme of professional, community and/or amateur work presenting no less than 30 performances a year.
  • have a bona fide UK charitable or not-for-profit legal structure and be able to provide certified or audited accounts for at least two years.

The deadline for applications for Round 16 is 5 October 2020.
