Book Shows »


Carn to Cove offers two seasons per year: Autumn (October – December) and Spring (February – June). Each venue is able to book one show per season which we subsidise. We host two menu parties for each season – for Autumn the party is usually in April and for the Spring, in September. We work on putting the shows together for the menu in the weeks leading up to the menu party. If you want to find out more, drop us an email [email protected] or give us a call on 01209 312500.

About Rural Touring

Carn to Cove is a member of the National Rural Touring Forum and we work with a diverse range of top quality touring artists that produce and tour accessible performances for our communities.
