2. Night Out

Gwynedd Council Community Arts works in partnership with Night Out:

Are you a community centre, village hall or youth club?

Would you like to put on professional performances in your venue?

Would you like to stop the headache of financial risk?

Think you can't afford it? Yes, you can.

Then apply to the Night Out scheme run by the Community Touring Unit of The Arts Council of Wales in partnership with Gwynedd Council. We can provide funding, advice, tickets and an up-to-date web site with details of companies and shows available.

Are you a professional performer, theatre company or band that would like to join the scheme?
