The autumn season is very nearly here and Promoter groups across Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire are busy putting up posters, distributing leaflets and selling lots of tickets. This year we are really pleased to welcome more than 20 new Promoter groups to the scheme, many of whom will be promoting their first Live & Local show over the next few weeks.
Calver Film are one of our new Promoter groups based in Derbyshire Dales. Their first Live & Local show, Ashley Hutchings and Ken Nicol, takes place on Friday 1 October. They said: “We decided to take part in Live & Local because we wish to bring live theatre and music to our village. So far our film club has been very successful having found a niche market. Many people do not wish to travel far into Sheffield or Chesterfield to see films or theatre but still want to view quality entertainment.”
“We picked Ashley Hutchings and Ken Nicol as we realised they were top quality performers giving us a unique experience of having them visit our local area… The response has been very positive so far and we expect a rush at the last minute with sales on the door. We look forward to promoting something exciting and new to the area and hopefully we can repeat it next year.”
