Spot On relies on volunteers who have a passion for promoting events for their local community. We find that the most successful promoters are working closely with the venue in which they are hosting work – often they are part of the village hall committee and can draw on a number of people to assist them in the selling of tickets, marketing and preparation before an event.
Spot On promoters are the first point of contact for the Spot On office staff, the artists and the local audiences. They make the final choice on the show for their venue, they ensure the venue is available, they plan how they will sell their tickets and any additional extras such as arranging a bar, catering for the artists (and sometimes the audience). They also ensure that the artist is paid following the event.
Being a promoter is a very rewarding role; enabling professional arts to be brought into the local community, encouraging use of rural spaces and developing relationships with local residents. We actively encourage our promoters to see other work being hosted in other Spot On venues and to become active in seeking out new artists for future seasons.
