*THIS EVENT WAS CANCELLED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS*
The 2020 Gathering was planned to take place on the Isle of Skye. This is the first time we’d have hosted our flagship event on an island, so it was expected to be as inspired by the dramatic skye scenary outside as the performances inside on stage!
The theme for this year is Greener Touring, so you can expect lots of ideas for sustainable programming, audience transport, greener venues alongside a very exciting showcase and evening programme!
The whole event will take place at Sabhal Mór Ostaig, and we’re grateful for the support from SEALL in programming our evenings.
Members Early Access – 29th Jan 2020
General Sale – 19th Feb 2020
WHAT PEOPLE SAID, PREVIOUS YEARS
As a participant at the Gatherings, we’ve been able to build relationships with small and medium scale promotors across The Highlands, Hebrides and Northern Isles. These partnerships have lead to some ambitious projects and great audience response. It’s always great to work with a network that does what it should do, and does it really well!
The Gathering… acted as a brilliant introduction to many of the promoters in the area and made follow up conversations with promoters much easier. The Touring Network were brilliant at establishing relationships with venues and promoters who were not at The Gathering and were on the phone throughout the process to offer advice. With their support, we were able to extend the tour to a greater number of rural venues, which would not have been possible without this additional support!
Thank you, and The Touring Network team, for a fabulous ‘Gathering’. We have come away with such a lot of helpful information to digest and then act upon, I’m now really excited and enthused about what we can do to further develop our arts programme … lots of plans! I would just like to let you know that we really appreciate the support we have from The Touring Network, in all its forms. So thanks all!
