Mission & Values

We think live performance has the power to fire the imagination, uplift and connect us. It creates moments that touch the hearts and minds like nothing else. It makes memories that last a lifetime.

We exist to promote, support and produce performing arts projects in our communities.

We bring world-class events to unexpected places, like town centres, village squares, beaches and hilltops. And we’ve been doing it for over 30 years.

Our aim is to break down barriers and reach the widest possible audiences, while celebrating our natural landscape and sense of place.

Supporting our performing arts community is at the heart of everything we do. We bring people together, offer advice, and provide access to learning and resources. We’re here to help creatives at all levels on their journey towards creating outstanding, inspiring work.

As a not-for-profit organisation, we work in many ways and with many partners. Our team may be small, but we’re agile, expert and very well connected, with a will to make things happen.

Extraordinary moments connect and uplift us all.
