Appetite is a large programme that aims to get more people from Stoke-on-Trent to experience and be inspired by the arts.

Appetite is funded by Arts Council England as part of the Creative People and Places programme and is led by the New Vic Theatre.

Creative People and Places aims to increase the number of people experiencing the arts in areas where arts engagement is significantly below the national average in the country.

The Appetite programme aims to build an appetite for the arts in the city by programming high quality events in public spaces. It places people at the heart of the programme so they can take part and shape arts activity in Stoke-on-Trent.
