Artists and Creative Partners

We are always on the lookout for artists to work with. We generally don’t book a show unless we have seen it. So, if you would like us to consider you please send us invitations so that we can experience your work. We are happy to come along to ‘in development’ performances and are happy to support artists developing new work with advice on how to work with us and other festivals.

We are looking for street theatre of all scales, installation work, bands, and are keen to present visual arts outdoors. We have artists and performers at all our events and are always keen to collaborate with touring proposals and work with other venues to reduce travelling and accommodation costs. We welcome participatory workshops to accompany performances and are always looking for new ways to engage our communities. We will also consider one off additional events or happenings to expand our programme if appropriate.

We write our funding bids between September and November so if you haven’t been included in the bid and you are looking for commissioners we need to be having a discussion with you before this time.

We are very happy to be approached by other festivals or promoters to facilitate joint bookings and tours.
