ON Tour


Rural Arts ON Tour was established in 1999 and is the nationally recognised rural touring scheme for North Yorkshire and East Cleveland. Each year 60+ performances take place in village halls and community centres over 2,500 square miles. The ON Tour team support community volunteers to book and promote performances in their village.


ON Tour brings high quality professional theatre, comedy, music, dance and childrenís shows to venues in rural settings. Our diverse programme includes international, nationally acclaimed and emerging companies. Previously, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Phoenix Dance Theatre and Farnham Maltings have all toured as part of ON Tour.


ON Tourís ethos is to turn village halls and community centres into theatre venues for an evening. This is only possible through our network of 300 volunteers, who are committed to bringing performances to their community.
