Live & Local

Live & Local is a not-for-profit arts organisation working with a network of voluntary groups across Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire. They provide a range of support for arts activities, including the Live & Local Rural & Community Touring Scheme.  This scheme supports a network of voluntary organisations who bring their communities together to enjoy high-quality, entertaining and affordable professional live theatre, storytelling, music, dance, family & children's shows and film screenings in their local village hall, church or school.

All Hallows Hall, in Lady Bay, is fortunate to be one of the venues and their events are included in our Events listing.  Several other venues are within relatively easy reach and more details can be found here.
