Jazz Services Touring Support Schemes
Jazz Services currently have two touring support schemes open for application.
Jazz Services National Touring Support Scheme
Applications are being accepted for this scheme until June 30th, for tours taking place between October and December 2013.
The NTSS scheme has been revised and now offers awards up to a maximum of £2500, for a minimum of 6 dates within a four week period. Additionally, Jazz Services provides a publicity service for the chosen bands.
For full information and application form, see Jazz Services National Touring Support.
Jazz Services Rural Touring Support Scheme
Applications for the next round of Rural Touring Support will open on Monday June 24th, with the closing date of Sunday 21st July.
The Rural Touring Support Scheme is similar to our National Touring Support Scheme, and helps fund bands to go on the road. However, unlike, the National scheme, the Rural one focuses on smaller local venues in areas less well served by a touring arts scene. Jazz Services works in conjunction with the National Rural Touring Forum, whose pool of nationally distributed rural promoters are able to arrange a tour in their area with the successful applicants. The cost of this tour is covered by the National Rural Touring Forum and Jazz Services.
For full information, see Jazz Services Rural Touring Support Scheme.
