Theatre Trust Small Grants Scheme

Theatres Trust’s Small Grants Programme, supported by The Linbury Trust, are funding small projects that make a big impact to a theatre’s resilience, sustainability, accessibility or improving the diversity of audiences.

This new scheme provides grants of up to £5,000 for essential works to enable not-for-profit theatres across the UK to be viable and thrive in the future.

This scheme will prioritise improvements to buildings that protect theatre use and remove barriers to participation and attendance.

Please note that revenue and survey costs are ineligible. This fund is to support improvements and repairs to the building fabric, and the key plant and machinery or the purchase of key equipment (not software) to improve digital infrastructure.

Who can apply

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 5 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


Application Deadline – 13 January 2023
