I used to have a van for this!
I had a blue van, and then I had a yellow van! They were great vans, but I also used to travel by train with my wheely trolley and trusted manager! I think going back on the road is both daunting and exciting. I will drive again where events are located off the beaten track, and I'll catch the train again where events are easily accessible by public transport. The reality is, when I went to Newcastle to perform in their Art's Centre, it just didn't make sense to drive from London, when I could get a return train, and arrive fit for purpose! The same reality applies now, only I won't be travelling from London any more. I've given up the capital for the sticks! Shropshire to be precise, so my local area is completely new to me, and my extended area is subject to demand, but probably much the same!
I went in to my local library and was told that Shrewsbury, Oswestry and Ludlow are my central areas in Shropshire. I'll be in Birmingham in a week and will pop into to their new library to ask the same questions regarding who and where my contacts for bookings are. Then I'll keep looking around and promoting myself. If you see this and have any ideas, please send them to me, and I'll see you on the road with my new show! Take lots of pictures and I'll post them! Thanks!
