The Loco Motive was a project I ran in Totnes, in the first half of this year. The aim was to bring the first weekly theatre program to Totnes, showcasing professional small scale touring theatre from across the UK. We had a wonderful array of fringe shows and a nice healthy audience was building. We had nearly 350 people through the doors who saw affordable theatre from Bristol, Oxford, London, Bath and the South West. However we weren't successful with our Arts Council Application and the project was forced to cease. As I was running this 35 hr + /week project on a voluntary basis, I couldn't afford to continue the program on the hope we would be succesful with our next application. I am currently trying to find £800 to meet the outstanding costs of running the project. If anyone would like to help meet these costs, I would be extremely grateful.
I am passionate about enriching our community through the arts and will continue to do so with my work.
