Theatre Green Book - Sustainable Productions Seminar

About this event

This seminar is being run a number of times to allow as many as possible to participate.

Groups and individuals across theatre have been talking for some time about how to make theatre more sustainable and working on blueprints to promote change. The Theatre Green Book aims to bring that thinking together into one place, and develop it as straightforward, practical advice on the first steps everyone should be taking to make productions, theatre buildings and front-of-house operations sustainable.

This ‘Green Book’ of guidance for sustainable theatre will focus on first steps: what everyone can and should be doing to change their practice now, but it will also map out paths ahead, indicating what further steps might be needed to reach a sustainable future quickly.

The first part of the project is looking at productions – a 'Beta' version is now available for theatres to trial on re-opening shows and provide feedback on before the final version is released later in the year.

Paddy Dillon, Theatre Green Book Co-ordinator, is holding a series of free seminars for those who are interested in trialling the Sustainable Productions volume of the Theatre Green Book, or thinking about it, or simply want to hear more.

Each seminar will last an hour, and the aim will be to take people through the Theatre Green Book beta version, and answer questions. It will also be a chance for companies thinking of working with the Theatre Green Book to connect with each other and those who are already planning to trial a show can bring their teams along – including freelancers – to learn more.

Theatres Trust is a project partner along with ABTT and Buro Happold.

Organizer Theatres Trust

Organizer of Theatre Green Book – Sustainable Productions Seminar

Theatres Trust is the national advisory public body for theatres. 

We believe that current and future generations should have access to good quality theatres where they can be inspired by, and enjoy, live performance. We champion the future of live performance, by protecting and supporting excellent theatre buildings which meet the needs of their communities.

We do this by providing advice on the design, planning, development and sustainability of theatres, campaigning on behalf of theatres old and new and offering financial assistance through grants.

We promote the quality and design of existing and new theatres and protect important historic theatres so that they can be used as theatres in the future. The Trust also advises to ensure theatre buildings meet the current needs and demands of the theatre industry and the audiences they serve.
