Venues, Producers and Touring Forums

Venues, Producers and Touring Forums

UK Theatre and SOLT, working with colleagues across the sector, are running a programme of work to help improve the deal between venues and producers.

As discussions at the Theatre and Touring Symposium 2018 showed; the touring, producing and presenting ecology has changed considerably in recent years. We know that our industry is at risk if it doesn’t adapt to the changing context.

UK Theatre and SOLT  held a series of UK wide forums for venues, producers and touring companies, where everyone was invited to be involved in:

  • Devising a contemporary, consistent and clear way to make the most of what they have         
  • Building stronger relationships    
  • Improving the long term health of the touring, producing and presenting model

Anyone from the sector was welcome to take part in the forums.

The sessions provided a space for venues and producers to understand each other’s operating context, to discuss wider issues affecting touring, and to consult on the contents of the new Producing, Presenting and Touring handbook. 

The new Producing, Presenting and Touring handbook will be published in April and will help all parties use clear and consistent ways of working. It will also lead to a shared understanding of the operating context for venues, producers and touring companies.

Further discussions and actions concentrating on wider issues affecting the health of touring will be taken forward at the Theatre and Touring Symposium in June 2019.
