Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Theatre Artists Fund, Industry Updates and Wellbeing Programme 

The Theatre Artists Fund has been set up to provide emergency support for theatre workers and freelancers across the UK. It is for theatre professionals who are in need of urgent and critical financial support due to the devastating impact of Covid-19 on the theatre sector.

The Fund has been made possible from a generous donation from Netflix.

Our ambition for the fund is to provide short-term relief for hundreds of theatre workers and freelancers across the UK, and particularly those from underrepresented groups disproportionately affected by the crisis. Please visit the Theatre Artists Fund webpage to apply or donate today.

UK Theatre Members can access Member updates and further guidance in the UK Theatre Members Resources area - please login to view the pages. Theatre professionals who are not members can check the latest updates here.

Please visit the Working safely during Coronavirus page for the latest government guidance on reopening and FAQs; our DCMS Entertainment and Events Working Group page for updates on our advocacy; and the Government Guidance Library with links to all the government schemes and advice for the different parts of the theatre sector.

The Covid-19 crisis has created an unprecedented challenge and many of us are worried about the impact it is having on people's wellbeing and mental health. We have created a new Wellbeing page to provide our members with tools and resources to support themselves and their colleagues and employees.

Advocacy & Campaigns

UK Theatre talks to local and national Government to make sure that the sector’s voice is heard and to evidence the value that theatre brings to society and the economy. We keep you involved and updated on responses to recent consultations and key industry issues, and support campaigns such as: Inspiring the Future of Theatre; Hearts For the Arts; Parents in Performing Arts; What Next? and the Family Arts Campaign.   

UK Theatre Advocacy & Campaigns

Due to the current situation we have postponed all UK Theatre in-person events for the foreseeable future.

Please visit for details of online events and digital learning resources. We are currently inviting proposals for webinars on wellbeing.

UK Theatre and SOLT's headline conference, the Theatre and Touring Symposium has been postponed until Monday 27 June 2022. The event will be appropriately re-purposed in 2021 to enable the industry to respond to and discuss the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as focusing on ongoing business recovery.
