Outdoor season 2019

Full Menu


Next summer delight, entertain and inspire audiences at your outdoor events with mischievous cavemen, a giant dodo, some cake baking birds, participatory painting, ping pong playing dancers, a 17ft tall tree and a shark!

Applause Rural Touring takes live arts into the heart of rural communities in Kent and Sussex, and in the summer of 2019, we are supporting, through commission funds and development awards, seven professional companies who have created exciting and interactive shows specifically to tour to outdoor events.


"The shows are fantastic spectacles and delighted our audiences, helping to animate our town centre and add to the overall buzz and feel good factor. We will definitely book again!" David Robinson, Create Ashford, Outdoors 2018


The companies and shows are:

● Bootworks Theatre: We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat
● Joe Garbett Dance: Doubles
● Eric MacLennan: : The Open Air Drawing Room (co commisioned with Turner Contemporary)
● Smoking Apples: Arbor The Tree
● Rust and Stardust: Tweethearts
● Enter Edem: Comedy Cavemen
● Dizzy O'Dare: The Dodo Rider


"One of the most uplifting pieces of street theatre I've seen in a long time. Fast paced, funny, imaginative, a blast for the whole family" Audience Member at Glastonbury on Bootworks
