Live and Local

Worcestershire’s Rural and Community Touring Scheme, bringing live arts to your doorstep!

Shindig’s Autumn Season programme is full of great shows. As always you’ll find a variety of high quality shows for all ages and a warm welcome waiting. You can trust Shindig to bring you memorable evenings and they’re often popular so be sure to book your tickets early.

Worcestershire’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 Co-ordinators, Live & Local Ltd., and their local authority arts officers.

Touring companies and performers with regional, national and international profiles provide a wide range of theatre, dance, music, opera, storytelling, cabaret theatre, children’s theatre, circus and clowning including cultural diversity work. The work is often specifically made for small spaces. Shindig is subsidised by Arts Council England, Worcestershire County Council and Wyre Forest District Council.

Venues and Promoters

Shindig is nothing without its promoters and venues.

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 the Scheme Co-ordinator at Live & Local on (01926) 402173 for more information, or you can contact our Arts Development Team

Shindig is supported by Arts Council England, West Midlands, Worcestershire County Council and the District/Borough Councils of Bromsgrove, Malvern Hills, Redditch, Worcester City, Wychavon and Wyre Forest.
