Showcases are a great opportunity for us to present Inn Crowd to a wider audience, and in 2018 Inn Crowd was part of the Brighton Fringe. Details of more showcases in 2019 will be announced soon!


On Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th May 2018, Applause Rural Touring and Creative Arts East presented an Inn Crowd Showcase at the Sweet Dukebox Theatre as part of the Brighton Fringe. It was a fantastic weekend with brilliant performers and enthusiastic audiences, take a look at the film we made that weekend on the homepage. The showcase was an opportunity for interested landlords, pub goers, other rural touring networks and all audiences with an interest in energetic, inspiring, inventive and interactive spoken word and live literature to experience a range of shows and performers who participate in the project.

There were two ‘scratch’ performances on the Saturday followed by three shows on each evening:
