Small Scale Touring Network

Are you an emerging theatre company, producer or artist committed to touring your work nationwide?

ETT are working in collaboration with a wider network of established touring companies including China Plate, Paines Plough, Fuel, Graeae, Kneehigh, MAYK, Out of Joint, Tiata Fahodzi, Wise Children and Yellow Earth to share knowledge and experience with emerging companies, producers and artists committed to touring, and to then introduce them to Paines Plough’s Small Scale Touring Network (SSTN) across the UK.

This project aims to strengthen and broaden connections between touring companies and small scale venues. It will also form the beginning of a conversation between established and emerging touring companies from which we all hope to learn from you what better support we can provide over the coming months / year.

How it will work:

On Friday 19 June 2pm – 3.30pm Paines Plough and ETT will co-facilitate a zoom session sharing some of the useful discussions they have been having in the NPO
touring network and hear from emerging companies. This will form the basis of the
discussion the following week.

Wednesday 24 June 3pm – 4.30pm We will then invite attendees to join a Zoom with representatives from established touring companies, where we will facilitate
breakout rooms for discussion around more specific topics on the future of touring theatre.

Attendees will then be able to share details, plans and work with Paines Plough’s network of 30+ small-scale venues across the UK.

Deadline for expressions of interest have now closed.

We will be recording the sessions to share internally.
