Working in partnership with Applause Rural Touring and South East Dance, Now Showing is supporting a network of volunteer promoters with training and sustainable financial support to take performing arts to non­-traditional venues.


Today, 13 communities with more than 50 volunteers and 14 venues make up the Now Showing network, presenting work from Shakespeare and Gilbert & Sullivan to outdoor family theatre to rural, often quite isolated, communities around Swale & Medway.

Read a blog about Mark Skudder, one of our Now Showing promoters, and his experience of getting involved in the scheme; and another from our Now Showing Coordinator Bethan Tomlinson about the valuable asset volunteer promoters represent for their communities.
