What is Rural Touring?

Encounter astonishing, world class performances, live in your village. Thanks to inspiring local volunteers and funding from Arts Council England and Wiltshire Council, we present an amazing collection of the beat theatre, music, dance and visual arts in churches, village halls, back gardens, pubs, woods, and community rooms.


Pound Arts run a number of festivals throughout the year in and around Wiltshire.

Please choose from one of our exciting festivals below to discover more.
