Applications open for London Small Theatres Grants Scheme

Applications open for London Small Theatres Grants Scheme

The Small Theatres Grants Scheme is offering awards of up to £5,000 to small theatres in which are undertaking building projects.

The capital scheme was set up following the London Assembly investigation led by Tom Copley AM into the challenges facing the capital’s small theatres and its July 2013 report Centre Stage: Supporting small theatres in the capital

Priorities include projects that:

  • address urgent building repairs
  • improve operational viability
  • introduce environmental improvements
  • enhance physical accessibility

The scheme can also be used to help lever in other sources of investment, “particularly philanthropic support”.
