The Foundation believes that in order to maintain vibrancy in the arts, it is critical that the new generation of potential artists are nurtured and encouraged. Recognising that these are difficult economic times to get a start in artistic life, the Trustees are prioritising projects that enable people to develop their abilities and careers. Applications to fund projects that provide professional training, apprenticeships and work place experience in all areas of the arts, from stone masonry to stage electricians, will be welcomed. 

Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation 2016 Annual Review

We are delighted to present the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation 2016 Annual Review with details of our activity in 2016 and of all the grants awarded during the year.

The Foundation made a bigger impact than ever in 2016, with highlights including the establishment of the Andrew Lloyd Webber Initiative in the US with American Theatre Wing and the publication of our research into the pipeline for BAME talent in the performing arts, Centre Stage.

In 2016, the Foundation awarded almost £3.25 million in 33 new grants to organisations, supporting 124,729 people through its grant-giving programme. The grants focus on the enhancement of arts education and participation, improving access to the arts for all, and increasing diversity across the arts, culture and heritage sector. In 2017, the Trustees remain committed to support projects which make a visible positive impact on the quality of life of both individuals and local communities as well as continuing to explore the ways in which the barriers to the development of talent in the arts can be overcome.

We hope you find the Review interesting and enjoy reading about how some of the recipients from 2016 have benefitted from the Foundation’s support.

Our Trustees would be very happy to consider any appropriate causes. Applications can be made via this website using the ‘Apply Online’ button above.
