About Live & Local

Live & Local is a not-for-profit arts organisation working across Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire. We support a network of voluntary organisations that bring communities together to enjoy high quality, affordable and professional live performances and film screenings. Our work is made possible by investment from Arts Council England and local authorities in the areas where we work and it happens because of the dedication of volunteers.
