We programme throughout the year, usually 12 to 18 months in advance. Different decisions and activity can affect programming decisions; we are not a regularly funded organisation so must consider this when planning ahead. We currently print and distribute two brochures annually, with print deadlines in December and May – this is a new feat for LAC so this might change in 2020. It is best to get in contact as soon as possible.
Charlotte, who leads on our programming is part-time as well as managing other work in her role as Co-Director so please bare this in mind.
Final programme decisions may be made when we have enough potential shows on the table to make a decision about the balance of the programme. Final programme decisions may be made when the companies we have provisionally booked know about their funding too.
The LAC team hold monthly programming meetings where Charlotte shares some options with the whole team and everyone is invited to feedback as well as offer some of their own suggestions of work they have seen or heard about that might be of interest.
Whilst fees and availability are key factors in programme decision-making other things we have to consider include;

We’ll provide a hot meal for you on the day of your performance. Be sure to let us know any dietary requirements if you haven’t already. We would also like to invite you to join us and our audiences for a drink post-show, too. First drink is on us and it is of course entirely optional!

They also deliver to Lyth Arts Centre, so feel free to have anything delivered in advance and we can receive it for you.
