Theatre Venues Authority Database

In 2015, APAC’s Authority Working Group gained a Subject Specialist Network grant from Arts Council England to partner with AusStage, a collaborative database of Australian live performance detailing events, contributors, organisations, works and venues.

This data includes a number of UK venues, companies and works which occur in Australian collections and performances. Initial work was undertaken to provide authority records for UK theatre venues as part of this work.

The Authority Working Group ceased to meet in 2015. Any members interested in finding out more about the group should contact the APAC Trustees at

AusStage continues to provide free access to the data of live performance in Australia.

The Theatres Trust maintains a database of theatre buildings in the UK, which includes historical and architectural information.
