INN CROWD is a unique arts project run throughout the South East and East of England, with the goal of supporting rural pubs to host spoken word-inspired live performances. We coordinate and collaborate with some of the UK’s top artists and performers to provide pubs in rural areas with professional, high-quality, fantastic live entertainment, which in turn helps landlords to attract new customers, widen the experience for their regular punters, and reinforces the pub as a central, vibrant part of community life.

The project is delivered by rural touring organisations Applause (Kent and Sussex) and Creative Arts East (Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire), with artistic support from support from the National Centre for Writing and New Writing South and industry expertise from Pub is the Hub. It is funded by Arts Council England and will continue until 2019.
