Number of shows



Carn to Cove is Cornwall’s performing arts touring scheme which brings quality professional artists into rural areas. We usually promote about 125 live shows annually and reach about 9,000 people each year as audiences. Carn to Cove enables rural communities to bring something 'different' to their village hall, to bring wonderment and fun into the community, to make people gasp and cry with laughter, to create a social event to bring the village together or to make a bit of money for hall funds! The scheme offers professional acts at highly subsidised prices, reducing the financial risk to the hall and giving them the chance to make some money for their own use. It is able to do this with the support of funding from Arts Council England South West and Cornwall Council. Carn to Cove also works in collaboration with the other small-scale professional promoters in Cornwall. Alongside the main programme of live events we also run C Fylm - a growing network of community film clubs, and we're currently developing a Trailblazers project to encourage new young performers and promoters to take their first steps in rural touring.
