About Cheshire Rural Touring Arts


Cheshire Rural Touring Arts present live professional events to communities across Cheshire.

We deliver two seasons of touring each year in spring and autumn.

Each season we programme a range of shows from theatre, music, family shows, dance, live literature and comedy to 25 venues across the region.

We programme around 14 companies a year with each company generally having between 2 and 4 dates with us.

We have an open submission policy where artists can send us shows to consider for our programme at any time.

We also work with other partners across the north and with Big Imaginations to find great new work to programme. We offer advice to artist wishing to rural tour if they are new to the sector, we can also help direct them to any training, showcase or development opportunities that occur in the north or nationally (via the NRTF: The National Rural Touring Forum)
