TRAFALGAR ENTERTAINMENT TRUST 

Performances (e.g. Youth theatre productions and schools outreach programmes), workshops and entering into new management contracts for the operation of theatres.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • This charity is not recognised by HMRC for Gift Aid according to its latest published return
  • The Board has little diversity in terms of age

Financial issues to consider:

  • Liquidity appears to have been slender at the latest year end but unrestricted reserves are available
