The Theatres Trust has released details of the last group of theatres to benefit from its Theatre Reopening Fund.
The Theatre Reopening Fund was launched in June 2020 in response to the pandemic. Through this scheme, Theatres Trust has now supported 75 theatres all across the UK, with grants totalling £301,873.
The money is given specifically to help theatres with costs of Covid-secure reopening, and recipients range from the mid-sized to very small venues.
Grants of up to £5,000 per theatre have funded projects including changes to building layouts to reduce congestion, improvements to ventilation systems and more straightforward measures like installing hand sanitisers, signage and screens.
Funders who made these grants possible include the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, Charles Michael Holloway Charitable Trust, Judy Craymer CBE, Soho Estates, The Basil Samuel Charitable Trust, The Foyle Foundation, The Mackintosh Foundation, The Pilgrim Trust, The Swire Charitable Trust, Theatre Royal, Haymarket and Theatre Super Auction
