Some excellent news. We're thrilled to have been awarded a new grant from Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring Programme. Drawing on everything we’ve learned from New Theatre in Your Neighbourhood, the funding means we’ll be able to create new, volunteer-led social networks in Wolverhampton, Reading, and Newcastle and Gateshead, strengthen existing networks in Margate and Preston, bring shows to new audiences in these areas, and work with some great new partners. It will also allow us to create an online local touring resource for the benefit of regional partners, artists, and touring organisations.
Joyce Wilson, London Area Director, Arts Council England, said: “I’m excited to see Fuel expand on their already impressive track record of touring work. The project will significantly improve opportunities for contemporary theatre, and the wide range of partners will help to increase cultural access and engagement for audiences across England
