Previous projects

The King’s Hall Trust for the Arts have granted over £11,00 and provided underwriting of more than £50,000. The list below is an example selection of projects that KHTA has supported over the past 25 years. See Funding for more information about applying for a grant or underwriting.


Support for schools is not a major part of our work however we would welcome applications for projects in schools. In addition, the benefits that any project provides to the community and schools, will be considered when we are processing applications.

We have in the past worked Oxfordshire County Council’s Schools Advisors in order to increase its profile. The Trust was one of the funders of Oxfordshire 2000: A Portrait, an exhibition of art from schools all over the county held at Blenheim Palace in July, 2000, to celebrate the life in the county at the start of the new millennium. The show was a unique event, bringing together the art of young people from 4 to 18 years in schools throughout the county. The show displayed images and sculptures that reflect the people and places of Oxfordshire; a visual Domesday book.

Another project supported by the Trust was a visit to the International Youth Theatre Festival in Grenoble, France, in 1999 by a group of sixth-formers from three Oxford schools. They joined parties from such diverse countries as Israel, Finland, German, Morocco and many others to perform their own work, watch other groups’ performances and participate in workshops and discussions. The Trust has also provided funding to enable a Careers Evening for young people interested in working in the theatre.
