This year’s Shindig Promoter Meeting took place at Great Witley Village Hall. The meeting started with a presentation by John Laidlaw, Executive Director of Shindig, who gave an overview of what’s been happening in the past year. This year we were able to report back that our funding is steady and we shared the exciting news about our expansion into the East Midlands and explained what this means for Shingdig. We also invited promoters to voice their interest for this year’s National Rural Touring Forum Conference, which takes place in Norfolk from 14-16 July.
After the presentation the promoters got a glimpse at the new 2015/16 menu, as well as seeing a snippet of live performance by KEPOW Theatre Company, whose routine from their show Crazy Little Thing Called Love made me cry with laughter!
We had 39 people from 21 organisation on the night, which is fantastic amount so thank you to everyone who came. I would also like to say a massive thank you to Great Witley Village Hall for letting us use their venue!
The meeting gave the promoters a chance to meet one another and it’s also an opportunity for the Shindig staff to meet the promoting groups to.
I had a great time at the Shindig Promoter Meeting and I hope to be back in Worcestershire soon!
