Making Tracks Rural Touring Scheme
Making Tracks is the rural touring scheme for West Sussex, coordinated by West Sussex Arts Partnership. We help to bring high quality, inspiring and affordable professional live performances to communities across the county, through a network of volunteer promoters.
Each season a wide variety of theatre, music, dance, comedy and childrens shows are available to book through our menu, all at subsidised prices. The performances can take place in non-traditional spaces including village halls, community centres and village greens.
Promoting an event in your community
Anyone can be a promoter, whether individually or as part of a group. As a promoter, you will be involved in all the activities related to running a professional performance in your local venue, including marketing the event.
There are all sorts of reasons why people choose to become involved as a Making Tracks promoter, including:
• It’s fun and provides a good time out for local audiences of all ages
• Bringing people together within the community
• Enabling people living in rural or more isolated communities to see top quality live performance in a local venue
• Providing a wide range of excellent professional performance at affordable prices to both venues and audiences
• Encouraging community spirit by bringing local people together to enjoy a social event in a familiar venue
• It can be a way of raising funds for further community arts activities
All performances are subsidised by Making Tracks. We offer two levels of subsidy:
• Members (promoters from districts within the West Sussex Arts Partnership: Horsham; Chichester; Mid Sussex; Crawley)
• Non-members (promoters from districts outside the West Sussex Arts Partnership: Arun; Worthing, Adur)
Members will receive a subsidy of 45% of the total performance fee.
Non-members will receive 30% of the total performance fee.
Making Tracks pay the company direct once the performance has taken place. The promoter will be invoiced for the agreed fee. The promoter keeps all income from box office & refreshments, to be used to support future community activities.
Our menu of shows
We produce a menu of shows twice a year, featuring a wide range of performances for you to bring to your community. You can download the latest edition of our menu, and find information on how to book a show at http://www.creativewestsussex.com/makingtracksmenu.
