Theatres at Risk (Your News)

Theatres Trust announces Capacity Building Programme year 2 recipients.

The Theatres Trust has announced details of the six theatres that will receive a total of £67,500 worth of support.

Following the success of the pilot scheme, the six theatres are:
Brighton Hippodrome;
Derby Hippodrome;
Granada, Walthamstow;
Groundlings Theatre, Portsmouth;
Leith Theatre;
Streatham Hill Theatre.

The programme is designed to support theatres on the ‘Theatres at Risk’ Register to commission expert advice and acquire the skills and knowledge to push forward capital projects to help save their theatres. Alongside the grant, each theatre will receive support from the Theatres Trust’s advice team.

This round of funding will support projects ranging from governance support to viability studies. The theatres are all on the Theatres at Risk Register but are at various stages in their journey to restoration & revival.

The scheme’s funders are Historic England, The Pilgrim Trust and Swire Charitable Trust.
