Event description

Description

We're pleased to announce the next Pitch Up – a welcoming gathering of theatre makers, producers and venue programmers – will be hosted by New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich on Tuesday 14 May 2019, 1.30pm - 5.00pm.


What is Pitch Up?

Pitch Up is a half day event hosted by Farnham Maltings as part of the house initiative. It’s made up of 5 minute artist pitches and 2 minute venue pitches aimed at sharing new ideas and encouraging the connections to make them happen. Pitches come from theatre makers, producers and venues in a spirit of openness and collaboration, ensuring it’s a valuable event whether you’re pitching or not.

So if you’re an artist, producer or venue involved in making theatre, and you’re looking for partners for a new project, Pitch Up is for you!
