Theatre Reopening Fund

In response to the coronavirus crisis, Theatres Trust has repurposed their small grants schemes to support theatres to cover the additional costs of reopening after several months’ closure.

Grants of up to £5,000 to help not-for-profit theatres across the UK to make Covid-19-related adaptions and prepare for reopening.

The Theatre Reopening Fund will support building improvements and purchasing equipment that will support the theatre to be able to open viably and safely. It will not cover revenue costs.

Priority will be given to those which demonstrate how the project will support the theatre’s safe reopening.

Theatres are encouraged to contact Theatres Trust to discuss the project / work before applying. Following an initial conversation, applications should be sent to

The closing date for applications is noon on the 5 October 2020.
