Applause works with artists and communities to bring exceptional arts to familiar local spaces. We tour shows to village halls and community centres across Kent, Sussex and Essex. We work with brilliant performing companies and a network of local volunteer promoters to offer the very best of touring theatre, music, storytelling, dance, puppetry and children’s shows, giving audiences direct access to live performance on their rural doorstep.
The emphasis is on quality, because the hosts and venues work hard to make these performances happen, so they deserve it.

Many families said thank you for a lovely show and someone said they found the storytelling/puppet making workshop to be wonderful to see, because every single child joined in.
