Next Stage

The Touring Fourm is aimed primarily at performers, companies, designers, producers, technicians and programmers. Its aim is to get the creative team to plan and design the show from the outset with touring in mind as well as to consider production logistics and requirements at the early design stage and well before the funding application stage.

Led by Marie Tierney and featuring a host of experienced speakers and contributors, this training day has been devised to improve the touring experience for all.
