In May 2013, as part of PHF's 25th anniversary gifts, we announced the Paul Hamlyn Club Awards totalling £2.5m to be shared amongst five performing arts venues across the UK. They each receive £500,000 over five years to allow them to make significant progress in their work to attract and build relationships with audiences from disadvantaged groups within their local communities.
The organisation chosen for these anniversary gifts are:
Over The five years of these awards, it is hoped that these venues will develop models that have a long term impact on diversifying audiences and sustaining involvement and interest. Each organisation is creating their own scheme, tailored to local needs, and building on the strengths of their work to date. PHF is working with them to ensure that they can share learning as the Awards progress.
