The Arts Council of Wales' Night Out scheme works in partnership
with the local authorities to help groups of volunteers across
Wales to bring the arts to the heart of their communities. Each
year close to 600 shows are booked through the scheme by nearly 350
different community groups.
Community groups (known as Promoters) can choose from a huge
range of great professional performers and put them on in community
or village halls and other non traditional venues across the
Its simple and easy to use and works by taking away the
financial risk for the community group of booking the artist.
