Our Subsidy Scheme will be changing in April 2018
We are currently reviewing our Theatre Subsidy Scheme to create a simpler scheme which will be introduce in April 2018.
The scheme will be discussed at our Board meeting in October 2017 and the proposal below is based on the most common responses we’ve received from other rural schemes across the UK.
We are unlikely to know what funding we will receive from Creative Scotland for 2018-2021 until January 2018 so it’s difficult to finalise details, we wish the scheme to be as fair and supportive to you as possible.
It’s important for you to know that these changes are coming so that you assess the impact this may have on your programming.
It’s likely that we will have a transitional period between April and August 2018 to ensure that we can support you the best we can and reduce financial risk in the early stages of the new scheme.
If you have an audience of 30 or above your circumstances is unlikely to change and your events may be more profitable.
Currently we are looking at implementing the following scheme, but actual figures have yet to be set. These figures are in line with other Rural Touring Schemes across the UK.
Your minimum payment to NEAT will be 25% of the production fee, for example, if the show costs £1,000 you will pay NEAT a minimum of £250 regardless of box office income, for a £700 show you will pay a minimum £175. This is lower than the current 30 tickets scenario so you will start making income quicker.
After your minimum payment is deducted from your total box office income the following split will apply
- 25% Venue 75% NEAT
However some riskier productions will have a Support Fund if the 25% of the fee is not achieved through ticket sales. These may be dance productions, contemporary or experimental work, productions which may appeal to a smaller audience or engage with a more diverse audience.
We will look at a transition period to try and make sure that all productions are supported during the change – Support Fund is an example of the type of shows we will provide extra support to in the future.
If you would like to discuss these changes further or see how they may impact on your box office income please do not hesitate to get in touch with Emyr or 01330 826525.
