UK Theatre believes that theatre and the performing arts matter; to the public, to society, to education, to the economy. We make this case to local and national Government to make sure that the sector’s voice is heard, and to make sure that theatre and the performing arts continues to play a vital role.
We respond to the external environment, advocate and campaign on issues affecting the theatre industry in the UK. We keep members involved and provide responses to recent consultations and briefings on key issues.
These include, but are not limited to: diversity, funding and income generation, theatre and performing arts workforce, cultural education, access and changes to working practices. More detailed information on our goals can be found in our Business Plan.
We support other campaigns such as PIPA, Family Arts Campaign, the NCA and What Next? And in 2017 UK Theatre became an official partner of the Hearts For The Arts, helping the NCA to deliver the programme.
Members looking for our full list of consultation responses, advocacy work and monthly advocacy briefings, can find them on our Advocacy Page.
