We are delighted to be supported by The Foyle Foundation and Arts Council England for our 2017 Outdoors Programme.

You can download the full 2017 Applause Oudoors menu here.


Applause Outdoors is offering seven professional, contemporary arts performances to outdoor community events, fetes and festivals across Kent and Sussex.


"Bootworks have reinvented street theatre and with their latest creation dragged theatre
out of its traditional home and out onto the cobbles"

The companies involved have benefited from co-commission funds and development awards to build exciting, interactive performances, especially for outdoor events of this nature. This enable local fetes and festivals to benefit from top quality shows from internationally acclaimed companies at a subsidised cost.



The show fees in this menu have been negotiated by Applause to provide fetes and festivals in Kent and Sussex with great outdoor arts at very affordable prices.


The companies and shows are:

Etta Ermini Dance Theatre: CULINARY DUEL (Co-commission with Gulbenkian bOing International Family Festival)
Bootworks Theatre: THE JUKE BOXES
Beautiful Creatures Theatre: RAT CHOC CHIP
Matt Marks/Parrabbola: WHEEZE


We're also touring
Etta Ermini Dance Theatre: PICNIC
Beautiful Creatures Theatre: OCTOPOT


With a mix of walkabout and static shows, the performances are suitable for all ages and can take place at intervals throughout your event.


"Non stop entertainment from beginning to end - couldn't keep the children away!'


If you are a festival or outdoor event organiser outside of Kent and Sussex please contact Applause and we will obtain a quote from the company you are interested in booking.


More detailed technical information for each show is available on request.

Just right. The kids loved it. Applause Outdoors performances lift our event to a different level making it special, more exciting, more memorable.

Robertsbridge Summer Picnic Organiser on Stupididity: Not A Real Horse


Everyone was very impressed by the performance several people came to ask specially to find out more about it and Applause Outdoors. It was particularly appropriate for our event

Sheppey Promenade Organiser on Axial Dance: Trixie and Tilly Go Cycling


Everyone thought it was quirky and great fun. The children joined in with the dancing and seemed to be enjoying themselves. The performance totally suited our event. This is the third or fourth time we have used Applause and we have always been delighted with the performances.

Icklesham Summer Fete and Flower Show Organiser on The Honk Project: The Dancing Day Trippers


Very positive comments. Spectators were interested and enjoyed the one-to-one environment.
