ALW Foundation opens fund for repairing Victorian theatres

The ALW Foundation Victorian Theatres Small Repairs Fund is now open!

Established by Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber to help preserve listed Victorian theatres in the UK, the fund will award grants of up to £15,000 on a match funding basis.

It will provide capital funding towards discreet and vital repairs or conservation projects in listed theatres built between 1837 and 1910.

It will prioritise support for theatres where the programme of performing arts activity includes or will include a focus on encouraging social, economic and cultural diversity in the arts.

And it will help fund vital repair projects for which it is otherwise difficult to raise money.

Dr Simon Thurley CBE, ALW Foundation Trustee said “We hope these grants will help secure the future of Victorian Theatres not just as architectural gems but as vital assets at the heart of our communities.”
