Community Promoters

Darwen Library Theatre Community Promoters were born out of an Arts Council England funded project called Plugged In, which enabled groups in Blackburn with Darwen to handpick professional theatre shows.  The funding facilitated groups to visit and review performances, go backstage in a variety of venues and run fun workshops.  The groups then brought all that experience to Darwen Library Theatre.

Now several years on, the team of promoters meet regularly to discuss shows that they have seen or heard of, choose shows that they would like to see brought to Darwen, and support the marketing team through writing letters, organising promotional events, distributing posters and leaflets, taking part in radio interviews and supporting the Front of House venue staff on the day of the performance.
