UK Theatre’s Business Plan for 2017-21 reflects a changed and dynamic environment. Our industry is a vital part of the creative industries - one of the fastest growing areas of the economy - and in 2016 we again saw a welcome increase in ticket sales and income.
Over the next few years we’ll continue to face considerable funding challenges, our stages and workforce must become more diverse if our industry is to truly reflect and explore who we are, and we can play an important role in helping our society to navigate new territory outside of the European Union.
It’s vital that UK Theatre supports our industry to become more resilient and relevant than ever before. From 2017-21 we will support our members to make sure that audiences across the UK can experience wonderful theatre and performing arts for many years to come.
