Guidance, Reports and Resources

UK Theatre's vision is to see a well-connected and well-supported theatre sector, one which is at the heart of UK life. One of the many ways we support the sector to achieve this is through research and analysis leading to resources, guidance and best practice. Our industry insight is open to all.    

The following resources have been produced by UK Theatre and/or with our industry partners to support a more resilient, relevant and healthy theatre industry. We hope you find them useful.

Meeting Ethical and Reputational ChallengesUK Theatre are active participants in What Next? a movement bringing together arts and cultural organisations from across the UK, to articulate, champion and strengthen the role of culture in our society. What Next? has produced some practical guidance on ethics to help cultural organisations navigate the difficult situations they can find themselves in when an action sparks controversy – for example, the presentation of a divisive piece of work.  

The following reports were either commissioned or conducted by UK Theatre, in conjunction with our partners, to provide insight into the health and development of the sector:
