Village Ventures

‌Village Ventures is part of a network of over 40 rural touring schemes across the UK, providing access to high quality arts events for people in rural areas. 

The programme has brought professional touring theatre, dance and music to rural and community venues in Nottinghamshire for over 10 years, supported by local volunteers and promoters who select and host performances, sell tickets and publicise the shows.

Venues for the programme range from village halls to schools and community centres, each providing a warm welcome to both audiences and visiting performers. 

The programme runs from September each year, through to the following June and has an accompanying Village Ventures brochure listing all events.

The brochure is available from local libraries and other community outlets across the county or to view online.
