The UK’s leading membership organisation for theatre and the performing arts

UK Theatre has traditionally supported theatre organisations and now also helps individuals who work professionally in the performing arts at all stages of their career.

We offer five types of membership including special schemes for sole traders, suppliers of goods and services to the industry and concert halls.  Our members benefit from access to a range of professional services, high quality training and events, and networking opportunities.  As well as running the only awards scheme to recognise excellence in theatre throughout the UK, we lead audience development programmes and actively campaign on behalf of theatres and their audiences.
