Promoter Meeting 2014/15

In March this year we held our annual Promoter Meeting. They are a great opportunity for the Shindig team, and local authority officers, to meet many of the new and existing promoters. It’s a fantastic chance to share knowledge and experiences with each other and resolve any queries. These meetings are also the point in the year at which we introduce the wide selection of shows that will be available to our rural venues in the 2014-15 season – it’ll be here before we know it!

The Worcestershire meeting took place in Great Witley  and as usual our hosts made us feel extremely welcome with plenty of support when it came to setting up and clearing away, and with lots of enthusiasm for the evening.

The evening also enabled us to provide an update on Shindig audience figures and funding support from Arts Council England and the local authorities.

Sarah, our Marketing Officer, introduced a project we are involved in with The Audiences Agency, gathering marketing data about people who attend Shindig shows.

Sarah also introduced the new menu (annual shortlist of shows which the promoters can choose from), highlighting shows from different genres that are available for the 2014-15 season. We concluded the evening with a short performance from one of those shows.

It was a useful and enjoyable evening and we’d like to thank all the promoter groups that came along. Many of you exchanged contact details and made use of the chance to discuss your plans for show requests. Thank you also to Carlos Munoz Villalobos and Leo Turner for entertaining us.
