The Directory

We aim to show the range of work being produced in the region – from black-box to sited intervention – alongside details and contacts to facilitate further opportunities for that work.

LANWest Endorsed

A selection of new work, endorsed by LANWest members and colleagues – no longer emergent but ready to go, with the quality mark of a recommendation from one or more of the region’s key promoters or producers.

nb: scroll to the bottom of the page for each show to “comments” for details of promoter endorsements.

The Round Up

Watch this space – selected pieces featuring both well established North West artists and up and coming emergent work, all definitely worth keeping an eye on in the near future.

In Transit

Showcasing the LANWest touring project, which tours a package of emergent work around the region to both key venues and HE/FE colleges, developing new audiences and new outlets for the artforms.

In Transit chose to stay light on its feet this year, touring solo artists Gemma Neep’s Moi…? and You Can Leave Your Shoes On to Barrow-In-Furness, Liverpool, St Helen’s, Crewe and Chester. For more info contact

The Wildcard

An open space for work not falling into the ‘touring’ format, for one-off, invited projects made just for this space and for things that are just a bit ‘out-there’…


A chance to see what’s happening in the NorthWest…
