Birmingham REP Theatre
BE FESTIVAL, Birmingham's annual summer festival of international performing arts, returns each year to Birmingham Repertory Theatre. Serving up Europe’s frontline artists to Birmingham and UK audiences. It is a packed week-long celebration of theatre, dance and circus performances, welcoming artists from Spain, Turkey, Switzerland, France, Germany and Greece and beyond. It also features a free programme of visual arts, live music and workshops.
Every day, audiences are invited to meet at the festival HUB, bar and cafe that pops up in the backstages of the REP theatre. From here you can engage in professional workshops and chat to the artists at our Feedback Cafés. Every night, audiences can expect to sample four performances, eat dinner together on the REP’s mainstage, and dance into the dawn with the BE Late Stage programme of live music and DJs.
