Shindig - Surprising Shows In Surprising Places

Welcome to Shindig!

Worcestershire’s Rural and Community Touring Scheme

Shindig is Worcestershire's programme of professional live performances in community venues. A network of over 50 voluntary promoter groups choose the shows and sell the tickets in order to provide high quality, affordable and uplifting live arts on your doorstep.

Please visit the What’s On section for full details of all our events and join our mailing list to keep informed about the latest shows, artists and special offers. As always, you’ll find a variety of events for all ages and a warm welcome waiting.

Shindig is managed by Live & Local Ltd. It is made possible by funding from your local authorities and Arts Council England and it happens because of the enthusiam and commitment of volunteers.

Promoters and venues

Shindig is nothing without promoters and venues

The promoter is usually a voluntary group or organisation which takes responsibility for promoting the show, from choosing the artist, booking the venue, publicising the event, selling tickets, liaising with the performers and running the event on the night.

The venue is usually a village hall, church, school or community centre. It need not be state-of-the-art, though it does need some basics (toilets, heating, lighting etc).

If you think you have the people and the venue, and want to be involved, please contact Live & Local on 01926 402173 for more information.
