Festival and Event Programming

We have over 15 year’s experience of delivering festivals that are suitable for all audiences, and are diverse, impactful, and offer good value for money.

We have an in-depth know-how of all aspects of outdoor events; our specialism lies in working with people to programme events. We draw on our experience of working with the best outdoor performers to programme events which appeal to those with little or no experience of attending outdoor public festivals. We have knowledge of shows created by UK and international artists that span all genres, art forms, and sizes that can be performed in a variety of contexts. The end result is a programme that’s diverse, ambitious, and appeals to all.

Outside of this, we can offer advice on a range of topics including:

  • Booking international artists
  • Artist negotiation
  • Marketing
  • Production management
  • Audience development
  • Commissioning
  • Fundraising
  • Hospitality management
  • Culture and diversity policy

It has been a total pleasure working with you and cannot thank you enough for your crucial role in shaping our festivals strand into the powerhouse that it now is! The local authority has given us a grant of £100k over the next three years solely to support the festivals as they think they've been extraordinary so that's a pretty great outcome. And we couldn't have done it with you.
