Please read before applying

Pitch Up is an event to encourage relationships between venues, libraries and theatre-makers.

We encourage you to consider why you’re pitching and what relationships you hope to gain. This is significant in your application as we’re passionate about venues and artists working together to create new work. For libraries we are interested in work you have ready to tour as well as new ideas, as some libraries are not yet ready to commission and may need to build a relationship with you first. If you’re successful in securing a pitch, considering this will also help you to make the most of the day.

A panel will meet to decide the pitches. We try to curate a wide range of ideas from a wide range of artists. All applicants will be notified of the outcome.

If you are unsuccessful in securing a pitching slot we still highly recommend attending Pitch Up to benefit from networking and relationship-building opportunities. You will need to sign up via Eventbrite.
