Update from Applause August 2020

As lockdown eases, we are exploring creative new ways of working, staying connected with our communities and audiences, and supporting our artists and performing companies.  Read our Covid-19 Transparency Statement here.

With some restrictions on live performance lifted, we have put together a small menu of outdoor shows available for touring later this summer and autumn for those interested in having safe performances in line with government guidance, in their outdoor community spaces. Visit our Outdoors page for more information. We also have an exciting remote residencies programme as part of INN CROWD, bringing performers, pubs and communities together for shared experiences through poetry, song, mysteries and stories. We are working with artists to commission and create digital work, including audio dramas for adults and families, and we will continue to share lots of inspiring content online through our social media channels @applausetouring 

If you have any questions about working with us, hosting an event or finding out more about our plans do get in touch, we’d love to hear from you. The best way to contact us currently is via email [email protected]  

Thank you for your support during these challenging times, we are looking forward to sharing creative experiences and performances with you in different ways over the coming months.
