Inn Crowd Pubs +

INN CROWD is a unique arts project, devised by partners Applause Rural Touring, Creative Arts East and National Centre for Writing with support from Pub is the Hub. The projects supports rural pubs throughout the South East and East of England to host exciting and inspiring spoken word, poetry and storytelling performances in their pubs, reaching and engaging with a wide range of audiences. It also helps landlords develop their clientele, attract new customers, and cement the pub as a thriving part of the community.


If you are a landlord, restaurant or cafe owner or you run a community space and would like to see INN CROWD in your local community get in touch with us today.


“These performances are exactly what’s needed in the countryside. Bringing performances such as these into village pubs so that people can have a drink, possibly a meal, and then walk home. It also helps to make the pub more profitable”
– King’s Head, Diss, Norfolk


If you have a rural pub in Cambridgeshire, Norfolk or Suffolk and would like to try some live performance through this scheme, please contact
