Placing creativity at the heart of where you live

Join a network of
volunteers across Northants

Northants Touring Arts (NTA) is a rural touring scheme for the county
managed by the regions touring theatre company New Perspectives.
In collaboration with a network of volunteers, NTA presents a high
quality theatre, event and participatory programme in village halls,
schools, community centres, churches – bringing great arts and
unmissable cultural events to your doorstep.

By bringing performances and creativity into the heart of your
community means we bring people together to experience affordable
high quality performances and community events without the audience
having to travel long distances. Teaming up with NTA means that you
are guaranteed a high quality performance and have the opportunity
generate local funds by providing refreshments and an interval raffl e.
NTA’s programme takes place in small and intimate spaces to larger
halls with audiences between 50 – 100 people. As a volunteer
promoter you will provide a fantastic opportunity for smaller scale
professional companies and artists to be able to tour their work
to your neighbourhood. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic our live
programme is currently on hold, but will be starting up again in Spring
2021. If you are interested in fi nding out more please contact sally@ 

Whilst NTA’s live performance
programme is on hold NTA invites you
to take part in two fantastic projects:

Capture the sounds
and spirit of the countryside

NTA has joined forces with a selection of rural
touring schemes across the county to capture an
aural and visual mosaic of the diversity and unity
of the rural lives we lead. We want the sounds
of Northamptonshire to feature and invite you to
capture a 20-second sound and image of your
community depicting the Northants countryside
plus an audio fi le “greeting” or a few lines of
poetry from your perspective that sums up the
character and spirit of where you live. Then
head to for
details of how to submit your recording. To be
included your recording must be received by
Saturday 12th September 2020.

Your clip will then be combined and edited
along with submissions from the Lake District
to Cornwall to produce a Symphony of the
Countryside, with the fi nal piece mastered in
Cornwall and shared by Vimeo later this autumn.
