Roadwater Village Hall was definitely our most successful UK rural performance so far. The Take Art team were a delight to work with, as well as Mary from the village hall.

Do you want to tour your work to a rural audience?

Calling all performers, musicians, theatre makers, dancers and artists who create live shows for small venues. Here at Take Art we run one of the countries most celebrated Rural Touring schemes, working with approximately 20 companies and individuals a year to put on high quality performances in local Somerset venues.


Get your show on tour

Below we have listed some information for performers and companies wishing to be involved in the Take Art Rural Touring scheme in Somerset.

You are welcome to send information about your touring show to Sarah at Take Art if you think that it would be a good and suitable offering for the Rural Touring scheme.

Choosing our Artists

Please be aware that we get a very high level of artists submitting work (marketing packs, links to video clips, CDs, DVDs, reviews etc) for consideration throughout the year.

We review submissions in March each year to then shortlist and compile a 'menu' of shows available to promoters to choose from for the period of that forthcoming autumn and spring. If you have submitted an email but have not yet heard back please wait until March to follow up. 

If you are an artist who is currently booked on our latest rural touring season, please complete a Company Information Form about your show.
