Worcestershire’s Rural and Community Touring Scheme, bringing
live arts to your doorstep!
Shindig’s programme of live arts and entertainment for community
venues is hosted by voluntary promoting groups who sell
tickets locally, supported by the Shindig Scheme Manager and their
local authority arts officers.
Touring companies and performers with regional, national and
international profiles, specialising in work for small spaces,
provide a wide range of theatre, dance, music, opera, storytelling,
cabaret theatre, children’s theatre, circus and clowning including
cultural diversity work. The scheme is subsidised by Arts Council
England, Worcestershire County Council, your District,
Borough or City Council and The Elmley Foundation.
Venues and Promoters
Shindig is nothing without its promoters and
The promoter is usually a voluntary group or
organisation which takes responsibility for promoting the show,
from choosing the artist, booking the venue, publicising the event,
selling tickets, liaising with the performers and running the event
on the night.
The venue is usually a village hall or community centre. It need
not be state-of-the-art, though it does need some basics (toilets,
heating, lighting etc).
If you think you have the people and the venue and want to be
involved, then contact your local arts officer (see contacts below)
or John Laidlaw the Scheme Co-ordinator,
on 01926-402173 for more information.
