The theatres, collectively known as TNC theatres, have agreed a 1.1% increase on minimum fees and an increase of over 13% on rehearsal attendance fees. These increases mean that the minimum fee for a play is now over £12,100.
WGGB has also negotiated a definition for ‘short plays’ to be included in our national agreement with TNC theatres. The changes took effect from 1 April 2015.
We have also secured an increase of between 1%-1.2% on all minimum fees with the Independent Theatre Council (ITC). This means that the fee for a full-length play is now £8,350. The increases took effect from 6 April 2015.
Members who have queries on rates or contracts with TNC or ITC theatres should contact Ellie Peers, WGGB Assistant General Secretary.
