INN CROWD is offering rural pubs throughout the South East and East of England high quality live performance events for locals and new customers to enjoy. Shows are subsidised by the scheme and start at £100.

Do you:

  • Want to bring in new customers
  • Want increased takings (on average 66% uplift reported on performance nights)
  • Want to raise the profile of your pub as a community space


INN CROWD has been specially devised by Applause , Creative Arts East,  working with Pub Is The Hub, to help Pubs broaden their services, and to get the community together in their local pub.

What landlords have been saying…

“It was fantastic. It was lovely to have something different to attract people to the pub. Thank you very much”
The Oak, Dewlish, Dorset

“We are still getting rave reviews about last Wednesday. I think it went better than I ever expected and, because I was working, I don’t think I really appreciated how good it was. So we owe you a big thank and want to know if you have anything else we could put on?”
The Old Vine Inn, Cousley Wood, East Sussex

“These performances are exactly what’s needed in the countryside. Bringing performances such as these into village pubs so that people can have a drink, possibly a meal, and then walk home. It also helps to make the pub more profitable”
King’s Head, Diss, Norfolk

Pub customers have been thoroughly entertained too…

“Very professional, an excellent performance and something new for the pub and community. Much appreciated.”
Wheatsheaf – West Beckham, Norfolk

“Great to have theatre ‘out in the sticks’. Superb performance, very funny and accessible. Let’s have more, thank you.”
The Swan – Stratford St Mary, Suffolk

“What a great evening! Loved it.”
The Burston Crown – Norfolk

“Bring entertainment to the pub; that’s what pubs are for. Bring the villages together. Fantastic!”
The Old Vine Cousley Wood, East Sussex
