Applause Rural Touring works with artists and communities to bring exceptional arts to familiar local spaces. Applause Indoors is our rural touring programme to village halls and community centres across Kent and Sussex. We work with brilliant performing companies and a network of local volunteer promoters to offer the very best of touring theatre, music, storytelling, puppetry and children’s shows, giving audiences direct access to live performance on their rural doorstep.


We programme two seasons a year, Autumn and Spring, and offer a range of exciting and inspiring shows including adaptations of classic drama, delightful puppetry for families, humorous storytelling, new writing, imaginative adaptations of much loved children’s books, contemporary dance and a range of music for all tastes from classical, folk and jazz to Latin rumbas, Cajun and Country.
