Touring Scheme Survey

NRTF carries out regular audits of touring scheme activity to help build a picture of rural touring across the UK.

NRTF looks for some key facts about touring scheme activity to highlight some key messages for rural touring:

Rural Touring supports vibrant rural communities
Rural Touring reaches alot of people living in rural areas
Rural Touring supports high quality diverse arts experiences

The film below is by and about Arts Alive - one of our touring scheme members in the West Midlands and gives a good picture of what it is like to take part in rural touring as a voluntary promoter, a performer and as an audience member.



The surveys look at touring schemes, their voluntary promoters, their audiences, their venues, the companies and performers and how the finances work.

In 2013/14 the NRTF carried out a survey to cover the year 2012/13

In 2011/12 the NRTF carried out a summary audit to give us a quick picture of activity.

In 2010 a full survey was carried out and gives figures for 2008 and 2009.

The next film is of Highlights Rural Touring Scheme up in the North England.
