Applause has commissioned fifteen performing companies to tour fetes, festivals and outdoor events across Kent, Sussex and the wider region for summer 2022. With new commissions, as well as a selection of some of the best ready-made outdoor touring shows, the new offerings include puppetry, dance, circus, interactive poetry, music and walkabout shows. These shows are engaging and highly entertaining for all ages – perfect for getting the community creative outdoors.
INN CROWD is looking for ready-to-go live literature shows to offer to rural pubs from January 2022!
If you have a ready-made show that can be performed in small or unusual spaces, requires little or no tech to run, and you’re able to be flexible about working in pub environments, we’d love to see an application from you.
We are looking for exceptional, exciting, Live Literature shows that are adaptable to the needs of small, rural pubs that are often inexperienced at holding performances. The emphasis is on quality and fun because the promoters and venues work hard to make these performances happen, so they deserve it, as do their audiences.
This short form is designed to help you asses whether or not your show is Rural Touring ready. We take you through the very basic needs of rural touring and give you a list of things to consider. We also point you to other helpful resources and pages along the way. Please note this form is NOT a way of submitting your show to be considered for touring but should be used as a tool to equip yourself with the knowledge you need to approach schemes.
