In some fantastic news for the London entertainment scene, a number of the city`s establishments have become some of the first to benefit from the Theatres Protection Fund`s new small grants scheme.
The grade II listed Wilton Music Hall, the Half Moon Young People`s Theatre and The Soho Theatre are among the houses in the capital to have received the grants, each picking up £5,000. The measures could be fantastic for ensuring the upkeep of stage venues, some of which will certainly play host to future productions which can be enjoyed as part of memorable London theatre breaks
With up to £25,000 donated each and every year, the scheme has been set up by theatre impresario and producer Judy Cramer in conjunction with The Theatres Trust. It is aimed at substantially improving venues by addressing building problems, making environmental improvements and further enhancing accessibility. Cramer, famous for pulling the strings behind the West End phenomenon of Mamma Mia!, recently donated £125,000 to the scheme, a clear indication that the initiative will continue to operate for years to come.
