The UK Small Grants Scheme aims to target 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.
The scheme, which will run to 2017, is funded by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation and Judy Craymer MBE. Grants of up to £5,000 are available for small capital building projects that address urgent building repairs, improve operational viability, introduce environmental improvements, and enhance physical accessibility. Applications for technical equipment and refurbishment of soft furnishings are a low priority.
When making decisions Trustees prioritise applications towards specific and recognisable items within capital projects under £250,000.
The next deadline for applications is Midday on Wednesday 26 October 2016
