Throughout the weekend of 28-30 September 2018 we are celebrating all kinds of performance that is made by people who have a connection to Barking & Dagenham. Whether you are a seasoned professional, are part of an amateur company, perform solo, work with a youth group, are a student or an emerging artist - we want to bring you all together to celebrate what we have in common, and that’s Barking & Dagenham and performance! 

All types of work will be considered from traditional theatre, to music, dance, spoken-word, film, children’s work, rehearsed readings – the sky’s the limits! We are looking to support expenses where appropriate and you will keep 100% of the ticket sales (minus fees) for your show – so make sure you bring your supporters! We have 110 seats available in our studio theatre. Tickets will be sold for £8 (£5 concessions).

Send us your proposal on the form attached and tell us more about your idea and your work so that we can consider you for the festival weekend. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday 28 August 2018. We will be announcing the full programme on Monday 3 September, tickets will also go on sale at the same time.
