WHAT PEOPLE SAID



“What was most valuable was the opportunity to introduce our new committee members to the Touring Network and show them that they are not working in a volunteer capacity in isolation and to give them inspiration – which is what the Spring Gathering gave them in bucket loads!”


Promoter

“The Gathering was a well run networking event with the opportunity to properly connect with a group of people who all work in the arts.


Promoter

“We had a brilliant time playing for everyone and are so grateful to be asked along. We found it a very valuable experience as we’ve already been booked by a few promoters and venues… And the food was brilliant!
