Birmingham Fest turns 5!

Birmingham Fest returns soon for its fifth year. Artists and companies from across the UK (and some from overseas) will once again showcase their work in an exciting two and a half week programme of events.

There is a fantastic range of shows that cover drama, music, dance, comedy, poetry, and much more. There is also a large selection of brand new work and writing. Hopefully there will be something for everyone.

The festival is great for the city & its arts scene. As well as having such an eclectic programme of performances it will introduce companies and patrons to some of the city’s venues that they may not be familiar with.

Some artists and companies use this festival as a taster before going up to Edinburgh. Others use it as a less expensive alternative, especially those in the southern half of the country. Birmingham provides a previously much-missing “fringe” element to the city’s theatre scene.

So join us to help celebrate our fifth year!

The festival will take place from 14 - 30July 2017.

The venues are:

The Blue Orange Theatre, The Crescent Theatre, & @ A.E. Harris (Stan’s Cafe).
