Arts Admin - Europe touring guide

The tour must go on! UK artists and companies can still tour in Europe and this is how.

We’ve created a simple, practical guide to support and empower UK-based individual artists and small companies working in theatre, dance and live art to continue to tour work across Europe.

From insurance and visas to copyright and cabotage, the guide offers a practical step-by-step overview guide, case studies and country-focused details to help navigate the post-Brexit touring landscape and will continue to be updated as the rules and regulations evolve.

Commissioned by Arts Council England through 1927, Artsadmin and LIFT, the guide was written by independent producers and consultants Nadine Patel and Ania Obolewicz and it is available to read and download in text, audio and Easy Read formats.
