About Us

Arts Out West tours high quality professional shows into village and community halls across West Cumbria. You can always be sure of a warm welcome from our local promoters who choose, promote and manage the events. As much a social occasion as a performance, a good night out is had by all!

Arts Out West was formed in 1999 and we in the Autumn season we will stage 32 performances in 24 village halls and arts centres from Furness to the Solway. It has a part time manager, Caroline Aston, and a part time administrator, Jocelyn West. Caroline and Jocelyn work from the Kirkgate Arts Centre in Cockermouth.

We are part of Kirkgate Arts, a company limited by guarantee with charitable status, which also manages the Kirkgate Centre in Cockermouth. Arts Out West works in partnership with Highlights Rural Touring Scheme (www.highlightsnorth.co.uk) to deliver a collaborative programme of events across Cumbria.

Arts Out West is one of about thirty similar schemes in the UK, and is a member of the National Rural Touring Forum.
