Production Companies

NEAT promotes high quality professional theatre and dance productions in rural venues.

Our venues vary in size from small village halls to larger town halls or small scale arts centres. Some performances are held in school halls, church halls and even pubs and clubs. We also promote outdoor and site specific performances.

The majority of our venues have no or little technical equipment so our events are better suited to self-contained productions or performances that require little or no technical equipment.

If you are a professional company and wish to tour to the North East of Scotland then we would like to hear from you.

What we promote …

Currently we only programme and promote theatre and dance productions and film screenings.

In the future we would like to offer music events to our volunteer promoters. If you would like to be kept up to date with developments please sign up to our newsletter.

If you are a band, musician, singer etc and you submit an offering that we cannot promote we cannot guarantee that we will be able to respond to your request due to the high level of theatre and dance productions that we receive.

How we Promote …

All of our performances and screenings are programmed and promoted by volunteers in rural spaces across the North East of Scotland.

They are passionate about the arts and they care deeply about their community. They volunteer so that others can enjoy live and screened events without having to travel great distances to large towns and cities.

Curious Supper Club

Call for Proposals

Break bread with like-minded individuals, see something new and join in conversation with the artists.

Curious is part supper club, part season of contemporary performance, part conversation. Curious is a partnership between Woodend Barn, NEAT, sound and Buchanan’s Bistro.

Curious is about introducing audiences to new work in a relaxed setting and encouraging and provoking stimulating conversation.

We are looking for new contemporary work and work in progress in any genre (music, dance, theatre, film etc) to be part of the Curious programme. Artists and companies must be comfortable engaging with the audience before and/or after the performance.

We can offer a fee of £500, and the usual set up is food, performance, facilitated conversation, however this is open to suggestion and to what works best for the performance.
