The Arts Council England note that:
“We are the national development agency for creativity and culture. By 2030 we want England to be a country in which the creativity of each of us is valued and given the chance to flourish and where everyone of us has access to a remarkable range of high quality cultural experiences. Between 2018 and 2022, we will invest £1.45 billion of public money from government and an estimated £860 million from the National Lottery to help deliver this vision.”
We promote the value of theatre buildings and champion their future
The Theatres Trust is the National Advisory Body for Theatres, protecting theatres for everyone. We operate nationally in England, Scotland and Wales promoting the value of theatre buildings and championing their future.
We are a statutory consultee on theatre buildings in the planning system, we provide expert advice on the sustainable development of theatres, we distribute small capital grants, and we help promote awareness and solutions for theatres at risk. We champion all theatres, historic, contemporary and new, in theatre use, in other uses or disused.

The UK’s leading membership organisation for theatre and the performing arts
UK Theatre has traditionally supported theatre organisations and now also helps individuals who work professionally in the performing arts at all stages of their career.
We offer five types of membership including special schemes for sole traders, suppliers of goods and services to the industry and concert halls. Our members benefit from access to a range of professional services, high quality training and events, and networking opportunities. As well as running the only awards scheme to recognise excellence in theatre throughout the UK, we lead audience development programmes and actively campaign on behalf of theatres and their audiences.
