We've been planning the third festival for some time now and it will finally be announced on 14 February. It's bigger than we anticipated - 10 different performance programmes, 12 artists and companies, 7 of them from Croydon. We're using some new and unusual venues and there's a very diverse range of work, as you would expect. Everything from personal memoir to pop-up opera, immersive to intimate, disturbing to dramatic. The programme features four world premieres, an Edinburgh festival hit, a film to be made on location in Croydon (commissioned by Croydonites) and a work presented by one of the UK's leading black theatre companies and a very prestigious central London venue. Curious? We hope so.
