Not-for-profit groups with at least eight performing members performing in any genre of theatre have until the middle of September to submit an application for funding that is offered every three years. The Fund is seeking local community theatre groups who are ambitious, willing to take on a challenge and looking for ways to increase their group’s confidence and motivation and to raise their profile in the local community.
Grants of between £500 and £5,000 will be offered to up to 50 groups across the UK to carry out training, attract new audiences, encourage new members and raise their profiles in their communities.
Projects should be new, open to the wider public, and take place any time between 1 December 2013 and 30 November 2014. The deadline for applications is 16 September 2013 (5pm). Full details can be found on the BBC Performing Arts Fund website
