The trust offers grants of up to £5,000 in two areas: performing arts and conservation.
For performing arts, the priorities are excellence in professional performance, the production and performance of new work and the development of young, professional artists aged 18 or over. It aims to achieve a broad balance between music, theatre and dance projects, and takes into account the number and location of the audiences and/or individuals likely to benefit.
For conservation, the trust will support the conservation of historic objects, collections and features of buildings and designed landscapes that are pre-Victorian in date (pre-1830s). In the case of churches, it will consider supporting the conservation of items such as monuments, wall paintings, stained glass, and historic furniture and fittings. Preference is given to smaller projects, or specific elements of projects, where the contribution can have a greater impact.
Deadline: 7 May 2021.
