Situation

With the current government's austerity measures the Local Authority support we have continued to enjoy is being reduced year on year, putting more pressure on the Puppet Theatre to find funds to keep the building open rather than for exciting new projects. We can seek specific funding for project work in the community, what we are looking for is support for backroom / running costs to enable the projects to run.

Solution

The project will create a secure funding stream for the next 5 years which will then enable the Theatre's fundraising efforts to be concentrated on project and development work. Projects including creating new work, working with deprived children at the Theatre and in the community; Development work including refurbishment of the venue, new IT, new heating/ventilation schemes.
