This autumn, village halls and other community buildings across Warwickshire will come alive with some of the most innovative and exciting live entertainment from the UK and beyond. The Live & Local Community Touring Scheme works with voluntary groups from across Warwickshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire helping them to choose and promote professional live performance including music of all genres, theatre, storytelling, children’s shows and much more. These shows take place in the heart of local communities in venues such as village halls, churches and community centres.
