Along with The Albany in Deptford, we are seeking to commission two new Christmas shows for children aged 3 – 7. Each show will be presented in one venue in 2017, and then in the other venue in 2018.

The commission packages include £40,000 cash funding plus wrap-around in-kind support. It seeks to support  two companies to make exciting and diverse Christmas shows which have a wide appeal to local primary schools, nurseries and family audiences in both South East London and the North East.

Each successful company will make and present a new show, in one venue in 2017 and the other in 2018, delivering up to 50 performances in December 2017 and December 2018.

To find out what we are looking for, details about the two venues, timescales, commission arrangements, financial and technical arrangements and to apply, please click here

Proposals should be no more than 4 sides of A4 and emailed to: [email protected] by 10am, Mon 4 Apr 2016.
