The Theatre Trust has announced that it is seeking applications through its Theatres Protection Fund. Through the Fund grants of up to £5,000 are available for projects that address urgent building repairs, improve operational viability, introduce environmental improvements, and which enhance physical accessibility.  To be eligible, applicants have to own or manage theatres with titles or signed leases of more than 5 years on buildings.  Applicants also need to demonstrate that they run a regular theatre programme of professional, community and/or amateur work presenting no less than 30 performances a year.  Applicants must 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.

Applications can be submitted at any time and the Trust will aim to reply to all applicants within three months. Read more at: http://www.theatrestrust.org.uk/grants
