Village Ventures

Norwell Village Ventures is part of a network of over 40 rural touring schemes across the UK, providing access to high quality arts events for people in rural areas.  The programme has brought professional touring theatre, dance and music to rural and community venues in Nottinghamshire for over 10 years, supported by local volunteers and promoters who select and host performances, sell tickets and publicise the shows.

More about Village Ventures.

Norwell Village Hall has participated in the scheme for years and extends a warm welcome to both audiences and visiting performers. The programme runs September to February (Autumn/Winter season) and March to June (Spring season) an accompanying Village Ventures brochure lists all events.  The brochure is available from Norwell Village Stores, local libraries and other community outlets across the county. The scheme is funded by the Arts Council East Midlands, Nottinghamshire County Council and Nottinghamshire's District and Borough Councils.

Firstly, Norwell Village Ventures receives a menu of possible shows including drama, comedy, children's theatre and dance, as well as a wide range of music including jazz, folk, world and classical. We bid for shows from the menu, giving as much flexibility in shows and dates as possible – we sometimes get our preferred options – sometimes we don’t, however as all of the shows we bid for are of such a high quality that we have never been disappointed with the acts we’ve been offered.

As a group we tend to ask for weekend shows that are family friendly, having a wide age range within our audience is of paramount importance, it’s great to involve young and old in community gatherings, and live performances are both inspirational and memorable.

We try to make an evening extra special with supper and cabaret style seating, we also try to keep our costs down so that it is an affordable evening out for families.
