Bringing high quality performances of live theatre, music, dance and family shows to the heart of rural communities


Artsreach are dedicated to providing people in rural settings with the opportunity to choose and promote professional arts events in their local venue.

Their performance programme runs through a network of around 50 volunteer promoting groups and together they organise over 140 high quality professional events every year, usually in village halls, right across rural Dorset.

The income generated from audience members purchasing tickets plays a vital role in supporting both Artsreach as a organisation and the community venues in which events take place, with box office revenue split between both parties.

Lost & Found were commissioned to expand branded communications and work with the Artsreach team to deliver a charity fundraising scheme. The proposed scheme centred around donation boxes or tubes. We enlisted the skills of Bristol-based illustration, Lily Louise-Scott to bring communications to life, reflecting the eclectic nature of the performances along with the rural settings.

In early 2020, Artreach celebrated 30 years of entertaining rural communities. To celebrate this milestone, Lost & Found developed an anniversary marque that will sit, pride of place, on all communications for a 12 month period.

We have been working with Lost & Found for several months developing branding and fundraising materials for our charity. The team was a pleasure to work with - friendly and responsive; nothing was too much trouble. We were really impressed with how carefully they listened to our briefs, paying great attention to detail whilst also coming up with some really helpful suggestions. They did a brilliant job of making our concepts come to fruition so they not only look great but are also very practical. The team at Artsreach would highly recommend Lost & Found Creative!
