Festival 2018 moves to Leicester

4 July 2017

We are thrilled to be going to Leicester next year.

We will be hosted by De Montfort University and the Curve Theatre. And may well use other spaces around the city if needed.

The dates are Saturday 24th to Friday 30th March inclusive. Selection Day to choose the shows is Sunday 28th January and the last day we can see shows is Friday 26th January 2018.

We are moving because the opportunity to hold the festival in such a diverse and culturally vibrant city as Leicester is too good an opportunity to miss. And the partnership with De Montfort and the Curve offers the festival audience superb facilities for the shows, workshops and festival events. De Montfort has a ‘village’ campus with all our venues very close to each other. Inclusivity and togetherness for all will be hugely improved. The city has several festivals throughout the year and we hope we will be as important to Leicester's cultural calendar as we believe Leicester will be for the Festival.

We will be posting further news as we go.
