News: Award Nomination!
Posted on: 17/06/2019
We are thrilled to have been shortlisted for an award in the National Rural Touring Forum Rural Touring Awards 2019, in the Touring Scheme Collaboration of the Year category.
With our partners Creative Arts East and the National Centre for Writing, our innovative project Inn Crowd supports rural pubs throughout the South East and East of England to host exciting and inspiring spoken word, poetry and storytelling performances in their pubs.
The live performances are specifically created for pub audiences and to the unique atmosphere and setting of a pub. Highly subsidised, and requiring no special sets or space, the shows give landlords the opportunity to offer new experiences to their regulars, attract new customers and reinforce pubs as central to vibrant rural community life.
Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and the next phase will see the scheme rolled out nationally across the country.
“Brilliant, refreshing, hugely enjoyable. Enriching the community spirit of the pub” Royal Oak & Castle, Pevensey
The winners will be announced at the NRTF Conference in Bangor 2-4 July.
