Smaller Rooms Touring

Led by So It Is, this project aims to develop venues understanding of specialist music programming and audience development to allow them to take managed risks supported by audiences.

Initial venue partners included The Met in Bury, Citadel in St Helens, Hothouse in Morecambe, Square Chapel in Halifax and Unity Works in Wakefield with additional venues taking touring shows when available.  

The inaugural project ran from June 2014 to June 2017 with 4 tours per year linked to festivals around which a programme of CPD for programming and audience development staff supports and builds skills and experience.
