I am delighted to be sending you 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.

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

The Trustees and I would be very happy to consider any appropriate causes that you would like to suggest. Applications can be made via the Foundation’s website:

The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation has awarded grants worth over half a million pounds to 17 projects across the UK this spring. These form part of the Foundation’s active grant giving programme, which supports projects that focus on the enhancement of arts education, participation, improving access and increasing diversity across the arts, culture and heritage sector.

The recipients of this round of grants are Arts Insight, Awards for Young Musicians, Furthering Talent, Beatroute Arts, The BRIT School, CLIC Sargent, Creative Access, Crisis UK, Denbighshire Music Co-operative, Frantic Assembly, Hoxton Hall Trust, Live Music Now, Malvern Theatre, MOLA, Rifco, Scottish Civic Trust and Tara Arts Theatre.

Madeleine Lloyd Webber, Lead Trustee of The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, said:
“Recognising the importance of equipping artists from all backgrounds with skills, experience and support is vital in order to achieve diversity and accessibility across all levels of the sector. From trainee schemes for young people to career development programmes for mid-career artists, I am thrilled the Foundation is able to support so many projects for individuals with limited access to the arts and from BAME backgrounds. We are also pleased to continue our support of the Scottish Heritage Angel Awards and mark BRIT School’s 25th Anniversary with further funding for their Bridge Theatre Company.”

Andrew Lloyd Webber, who founded the Historic England Angel Awards in 2011, said: “I am delighted to announce that the Historic England Angel Awards are open for another year of applications.   Too often the individuals and groups who work tirelessly to protect their local historic buildings go unnoticed.  We set up the Angel Awards six years ago to change all that.  I encourage everyone to come forward and celebrate these stars of heritage – those who keep our heritage alive and thriving for the next generation deserve to stand in the spotlight.”
