Shindig Promoter Meeting 2013

We’ve been keeping busy throughout February and March with our annual Promoter Meetings, introducing a selection of shows that are available for the 2013-14 season. These meetings are a great opportunity for the Shindig team to meet many of the new and existing promoters, answer any questions, plus a great chance for promoters to share their own knowledge and experience.

This year we travelled to Powick Parish Hall, and as usual received a warm welcome and great support. The evening started with a quick update on Shindig and some of the projects that we have been working on, then Sarah, our Marketing Officer, highlighted some of the shows that are available for the 2013-14 season, sharing ideas on how some of the new and unusual performances could be staged, as well as ideas around creating a theme or something a little different around an event.

We concluded the evening with a short performance from Spiltmilk Dance, to demonstrate how different shows can be staged in different venues – there was also time for the artists to talk about their work and rural touring as well as answering promoters’ questions.

We’d like to extend a huge thanks to all the promoter groups that came along. As you can tell, it was a jam-packed and enjoyable evening and we hope all the promoters who attended found it as useful and interesting as we did. There was a real buzz as people put faces to names and many exchanged contacts and ideas with each other. Thank you also to Spiltmilk Dance for their brilliant performances.
