Live & Local acts as a broker between local communities and arts companies, providing a menu which offers rural promoters a range of performances, including drama, music, dance, cabaret, comedy and children’s shows. The village promoter chooses the act, on the understanding that they will sell the tickets and promote the event. The touring scheme offers help with the mechanics of the event – contracts, tickets, posters, press releases, etc., and provides some financial assistance, so that the risks and rewards of putting on a live performance are shared between all the partners.
If you would like to promote performances in your village, or if you are an artist and would like to join the Live & Local circuit, please email Live & Local directly – firstname.lastname@example.org
Live & Local is part of Arts Derbyshire and financially supported by Arts Council England, Derbyshire County Council, Amber Valley Borough Council, Bolsover District Council, Derbyshire Dales District Council, Erewash Borough Council, High Peak Borough Council, North East Derbyshire District Council and South Derbyshire District Council.
