Shows For Schools was launched in 2011 and has built a strong following since. It’s a website that connects the arts and education sectors. At it’s most basic it’s a national, online, free, searchable database of events aimed at the schools market. In 2019, teachers booked more than 139,000 students into Shows For Schools events
For arts companies, producers and presenters, Shows For Schools website is a sustainable alternative to paper marketing. It gives access to all schools, wherever the event is happening. It gives equal access to smaller companies as well as those with large marketing budgets. It promotes the breadth of what’s available from the sector to schools in the hope that better access will generate more audiences and therefore more work for artists.
