The Gathering 2018 took place in the beautiful, creative town of Forres during the annual Findhorn Bay Festival. Forres is one of Scotland’s oldest small towns situated near the stunning Moray coastline. Gathering attendees got to experience the festival on both the Thursday & Friday evenings.
GATHERING 2018 ROUND UP
WHAT PEOPLE SAID
“I’ve found the Touring Network Showcase really useful for getting me in touch with rural promoters in the Highland areas and for establishing my subsequent tour. It’s the best way they can get a true flavour of you and your work, and makes the possibility of connections so much more real and likely.”
What a fantastic opportunity to share work and have face-to-face conversations about what promoters have seen, rather than trying to pitch shows with no context! So many promoters and venues present, and seamlessly put together by the wonderful organisers. Very grateful to have been invited, and very much look forward to future adventures in the Highlands and Islands!
I had a great time overall and felt inspired and somewhat overwhelmed by the variety and standard of the showcase companies and workshops. We are truly inspired.
