What is INN CROWD?

INN CROWD is a unique arts project, devised by partners Applause Rural Touring, Creative Arts East and National Centre for Writing with support from Pub is the Hub. INN CROWD works with some of the UK’s top spoken word and live literature artists and performers to provide rural pubs with professional, high-quality and exciting live entertainment.

This helps publicans to attract new customers, widen the experience for their regulars, and reinforces the pub as a central, vibrant part of community life.

How does it work?

As an INN CROWD pub or licensed venue, you can choose an act from a menu of exciting performers at highly subsidised rates. As an INN CROWD Partner, we at Live & Local provide you with posters, flyers and social media templates to help you market your event with ease.

What are the benefits of booking an INN CROWD Show?

  • INN CROWD shows attract new business by encouraging new members of your community to interact with your pub.
  • An INN CROWD show can be used to attract custom on traditionally quiet evenings.
  • Increased revenue – you can use INN CROWD to attract customers in or increase revenue opportunities with ‘Dinner and a Show’ deals, selling show tickets for a small fee or by providing the experience to their communities for free, encouraging return visits from new faces.
  • Hosting an INN CROWD show can boost community engagement in pub life and help to tackle loneliness and isolation amongst your community.
  • INN CROWD performances can help broaden the scope of what communities believe their pubs can provide them.
