Wolfson Foundation/Theatres Trust: Theatre Improvement Scheme

Closing date: Tue 6 Sep 2022: 12am

The Wolfson Foundation is working with Theatres Trust to improve the sustainability of theatres across the country through the Theatre Improvement Scheme.

In 2021, the Wolfson Foundation renewed their funding for the Theatre Improvement Scheme for a further three years. Grants of up to £20,000 are available to help theatres to reduce the environmental impact of their buildings. The next round of the scheme is now open. The deadline for applications is 6 September 2022.

It is hoped that these grants will support a range of projects that consider different ways theatre buildings can reduce their environmental impact. From sedum roofs to new windows, building management systems to more efficient water heaters, funding will be given to projects that demonstrate how a small intervention can have a big impact.

To be eligible to apply to the scheme, applicants must demonstrate that they:

• Own or manage theatres with titles or signed leases of more than five years on buildings in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland
• Run a year-round programme of live performance, of 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.
• Operate theatres that achieve excellence through their producing and programming or architectural significance

Organisations currently in receipt of other grants from the Theatres Trust or the Wolfson Foundation are not eligible to apply.
