Tourbook CIC runs tourbook.live - the the first fully user-led, accessible online marketplace for the programming and touring of live performance; whether this be theatre, dance, music, comedy, circus, spoken word and more. Tourbook is designed to make the processes and jobs involved with the touring of live performance easier.
The platform is owned and managed by Tourbook CIC. We're a Community Interest Company based in the Scottish Highlands with a strong commitment to, and belief in, the enduring impact and relevance of live performance, in the power of design thinking and the potential of digital tools to help make this possible in more communities. Our team brings together those who understand the needs and challenges of the performing arts with skilled professionals in design and digital to help build and promote the platform. Collectively we represent specific professional experience in event management, producing and programming, tour and network coordination as well as experience of working with the needs of many different artforms: music, dance, theatre, comedy, literature, film and more.
Tourbook emerged from those working on the ground within the performing arts sector - specifically from the work of an arts charity covering the length and breadth of the Highlands & Islands of Scotland and working with some of the most remote and rural communities in Europe.
