From a youth theatre project in Coleraine, to a site specific performance in Norwich, the Community Theatre scheme aims to support the development of not for profit community theatre groups the length and breadth of the UK.
Grants awarded through this scheme will allow groups to carry out training, attract new audiences, encourage new members and raise their profile in their communities. The BBC Performing Arts Fund wants to encourage groups to take on more challenging projects through commissions and encouraging collaboration with professional theatre makers and other local organisations.
Ultimately, the Fund wants to encourage a wider audience for, and participation in, the exciting UK community theatre sector. Find out more: http://www.bbc.co.uk/performingartsfund/grants/community-theatre
