Night Out

Night Out

International performing art companies wishing to tour Wales may wish to consider the Arts Council of Wales’ Night Out scheme as an option.

Night Out works with small venues such as village or community halls, many of which have limited facilities (possibly no technicians, proper changing rooms, PA or lights). Most of these halls are run by volunteer groups who occasionally put on shows for their community. In 2014/15 521 performances hosted by 343 different promoters round Wales through the scheme- covering theatre, dance, music from folk to jazz and opera, puppetry and circus.

If you have a show that is self contained and can fit into smaller sized venues please contact the Night Out office giving details of when you are proposing to tour, costs, what you can provide. The work cannot be guaranteed as the community halls choose what they wish to book but are happy to talk and see if there is a demand.
