Theatres Trust Conference - Book Now for Earlybird Discounts

This year’s Theatres Trust conference provides a unique opportunity to look at how theatres can create a more resilient future by using their buildings to achieve financial self-sufficiency.

Thriving Theatres takes place on the 11 June 2013 at St James Theatre, the splendid new 312-seat venue in the heart of Victoria in London.

The title of the conference, thriving theatres, is in part provocative as many theatres consider the question of how best to survive in these times of austerity and deal with major changes in the role of the public sector to both deliver and fund services. It is also a call to all those who aspire towards a thriving economy, more engaged communities, and healthier people and innovation, to see that theatres can provide solutions and are worth the investment.

Thriving Theatres will provide an opportunity to hear from theatres undertaking capital projects and initiatives designed to help them thrive into the future.

The conference provides an opportunity to meet and share ideas with other theatres, professional specialists, government and arts policy makers, theatre consultants and architects. So if you are planning a capital project – or want to find out how you can make the most of your theatre building book now for thriving theatres.

The conference chairman is Vikki Heywood CBE and session chairs are Nigel Hugill, chair, The Royal Shakespeare Company and executive chairman, Urban&Civic; Dave Moutrey, director and chief executive, Cornerhouse & Library Theatre Company and Anna Stapleton, Administrative Director, Citizens Theatre, Glasgow.
