Rural Touring Promoter

Partnered with Take Art

Seed has partnered with Take Art, Take Art is a unique, life-changing organisation that doesn’t live in an arts venue, dance studio or whacking great theatre but in the villages, towns and rural communities of Somerset.

Every year Take Art bring diverse, exciting and empowering arts experiences to thousands of people, no matter their age, inclination or background. The partnership is providing a framework to support and deliver Rural Touring in Sedgemoor. The project is running until March 2023, bringing high quality art performances to rural communities in the Polden Hills, Cheddar and Axbridge.
We want to enable the community to experience high quality theatre, music, dance or spoken word performances in their local areas, chosen by themselves at an affordable price.

How The Rural Touring Scheme Works

Promoting arts events helps people in your community connect with each other and enhances their quality of life. Promoting is a rewarding experience and we want to offer all our promoters support in organising successful events for local communities, so please do not hesitate to call us for assistance.
