If you’re new to Spot On events and you’re unsure how things work we thought you might want a handy guide to becoming a Spot On-er:

Choosing a show

We select high quality professional arts companies and work with rural and library volunteer hosts to bring events to communities across Lancashire. We help make a tour for these artists possible by contracting them for consecutive dates in the county – so you might see three or four different venues hosting the artist over a long weekend. Take a look at our What’s On page to get an overview of the shows on offer.

Buying your ticket

You can purchase tickets by calling/emailing the venue host directly or purchasing online via our Ticketsource links. If you’re local to the venue you might be able to buy directly from the host or over the counter in a library – we’ll make it clear in each listing how to buy tickets and who to contact.

A warm welcome

All of our venue hosts are keen to meet you – whether you’re local to their village or just staying for a holiday. Some venues offer food as part of the ticket price, others have a bar, some encourage you to bring a bottle – it’s always best to check what the refreshment offer is for your chosen event, and bring cash as a lot of our venues have limited access to cash machines or card readers!

Accessing our venues

Our library and our rural venues can offer information about wheelchair user access, accessible toilets and hearing loop equipment – there are a small handful of rural venues where there is no ramp access to the building or toilets suitable for wheelchair users.

We produce a ‘Things you need to know’ document for each event we host which summarises things about the venue and the show – for example if there are loud noises or blackout.
