Rural Touring in a Nutshell - a brief overview for companies and performers

We've put together this overview to provide an introduction to rural touring and some of the practical considerations to bear in mind. In it you'll find information on how rural touring schemes operate and on rural touring audiences, alongside pointers on staging and touring a show and what to consider when marketing a show to rural audiences.

We hope you find it useful.
