Pavilion Dance South West Accommodation ‘digs list’

Do you have a spare room? Could you give an artist a home
away from home?
Great! We want to hear from you…

We’re looking for local residents with a spare bed to sign up to ‘digs’ list:

If you live within a five mile radius of Pavilion Dance (Westover Road, Bournemouth,
BH1 2BU) and have a spare room that you would be interested in renting out to visiting
dance artist and choreographers please contact

Need more info…

What does PDSW do?
At PDSW we run dance programmes promoting and supporting the sector across the South
West and the wider UK. In our Bournemouth-based venue we present live dance
performances from some of the most exciting and innovative companies around,
screenings, exhibitions and more than 40 dance classes a week.

What is a ‘digs’ list?
A digs list is a list of accommodation within a short distance of a venue available to
visiting dance artists who are looking for affordable places to stay.

Why don’t the artists just stay in hotels?
Sometimes artists may be working in the area for a week or more and for longer stays
hotel accommodation can be very expensive, especially during peak seasons, and even
with funding this cost can be prohibitive. Also artists, especially dancers who need to eat
well, generally prefer to stay in self-catering accommodation so that they have more
control over what and when they eat.

I have a spare room, what’s in it for me?
Typically artists are willing to pay £10-15 per person per night and £70-£100 per person
per week. In addition to an extra income, hosting artists is a great way to support the arts
and meet interesting people. Many of our hosts also get invited along to informal sharings
of work and or performances.

What do I need to do next?

If you are interested please fill in this Google Form online. If you need a paper copy or if
you need any further information please contact Once added to
the list, we will pass your details onto artists and they will get in touch with you directly
to book. Please note that any agreements made are between the artist and you as the
landlord, PDSW offers the introduction only.
