Fest West is Wiltshire Creative’s annual celebration of contemporary live performance made in the South West, in partnership with Pound Arts and Town Hall Arts.
2018’s Fest West saw performances from fantastic companies from all corners of the South West including Theatre Ad Infinitum, Platform 4, bgroup and Publick Transport which took place across Salisbury Arts Centre, Salisbury Playhouse, Town Hall Arts (Trowbridge) and The Pound (Corsham). They kicked off the festival with South West Theatre Symposium, where artists and industry professionals from across the region came together to have meaningful conversations about practical ways to drive change in the sector.
The focus of the 2019 festival will be pan arts, and we’re really keen to hear from artists working in all disciplines of live performance including theatre/music/dance/spoken word/circus/inter-disciplinary performance/ work in non-theatre spaces.
