The Strategic touring programme is designed to develop audiences for great art in England and to build partnerships between artists, producers, promoters and venues, in particular, those on both the supply and demand sides of touring.
We are investing £45 million of Lottery funding in the programme over the next three years which complements other investments in building audiences for the arts such as our digital arts service The Space and our Creative people and places fund.
We are currently accepting applications for Strategic touring funding. If you would like to apply, please visit our Strategic touring pages.
Applications can be submitted at any time in the year however we have published key dates on forthcoming funding rounds to help you plan your application.
