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 and in UK Theatre and Society Of London Theatre 2017 General Election Manifesto Asks.
In April 2018, alongside SOLT and Education and Employers, we launched our Inspiring the Future of Theatre Campaign.
UK Theatre support campaigns including Family Arts Campaign, Culture Counts, and What Next? We deliver the Hearts For The Arts, on behalf of the National Campaign for the Arts. UK Theatre is proud to be a strategic Partner of Parents in Performing Arts (PIPA).
