Aims to give people of all ages, backgrounds and life circumstances, opportunities to access, participate in and enjoy the arts, particularly the performing arts. Limited number of grants each year. Generally registered charities, but will consider applications from social enterprises, community groups, etc. Whilst they don’t exclude large charities, applications from small to medium sized organisations will be looked on more favourably. May consider contributions towards specific core costs of smaller organisations. Grants from a few hundred pounds. Have previously awarded multi-year grants of up to £30,000 pa, the majority of grants now are considerably less than this.
