Live & Local Community Touring Scheme - http://www.liveandlocal.org.uk
...surprising shows in surprising places!
The Community Touring Scheme is a network of 170 voluntary organisations across Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire who choose and promote professional performances for village halls, schools, churches, pubs and community centres.
Promoters choose their performances from an annual Menu which includes a variety of regional, national and international performances of theatre, music, storytelling, dance, puppetry and more.The shows are chosen and promoted by the local community, for their local community.
Live & Local events happens because of the hard work and enthusiasm of volunteers. They are made possible by funding from local authorities and Arts Council England.
Big Picture Show Community Cinema Network - http://www.bigpictureshow.org.uk
Big Picture Show screenings transform community venues into cinemas, with the same warm welcome and generous hospitality that you’d expect from any of our live events. Voluntary groups choose the films and sell tickets locally. The films range from family favourites and Hollywood hits to screen classics and new independents.
Big Picture Show currently operates in Warwickshire and Staffordshire with plans to expand the service into Derbyshire and Worcestershire. Big Picture Show is proud to be a member of the BFI Film Audience Network.
