GBC Performance Grant – Our June’s Wedding

The Council’s Arts Development Team is delighted to offer a grant of £200 to enable a local community based in the borough to book a performance of Our June’s Wedding by Surrey based theatre company Theatre Exchange.

Our June’s Wedding is for all the family –  a warm, gentle, and funny show where the audience become guests at a wedding where everything isn’t quite right.  It has toured extensively to rural communities and at Brighton Fringe and received rave reviews from young and old alike.

The show requires a church for the first half, with the second half taking place in a village hall or community space.  The company have performed in a wide variety of spaces including town halls, registry offices and even outdoor marquees- it can be done anywhere a wedding might take place so if you have an idea of where you would like to stage the show, the company are excited to push the boundaries!  This is a wonderful opportunity to stage a show in a community space or to develop relationships with other organisations in your area.

Our June’s Wedding will be touring on weekends only from end April-July 2017. Please see flyer below for more information.

The grant of £200 is to help cover the associated costs of the performance (venue costs, refreshments costs etc.) and is offered on a first come first served bases.  The cost of the performance (which is £350) is being subsidised by the County’s Rural Touring Scheme.

If you are interested in this opportunity please contact me at ASAP (grant deadline Friday 2nd December).
