Welcome to Cheshire Rural Touring Arts

Delivering professional arts in rural places

CRTA works across Cheshire’s rural communities promoting delivering high quality professional theatre, dance, music and children’s shows over two seasons each year Our events are made possible by the 100 community volunteers who deliver these arts services in their communities. Our promoters work so hard because they love live arts events, and in turn they provide work for professional companies and support their local economy. The project is supported with government investment by Arts Council England, additional financial support from Cheshire West and Chester and Cheshire East Councils CRTA is one of 33 rural touring schemes across the UK.
