Fierce Festival 2019


Fierce Festival, one of the UK’s most respected festivals of arts, returns this coming October for 6 days of performances, immersive experiences, art installations, cabaret and activism, with the classic red thread themes of identity, politics, representation, queerness and club culture. Spread over the six day event is the events schedule, full to the brim with over 50 events plus 27 new performances, 14 UK premiers and 2 world premiers with work from over 35 different artists.

Life imitates art but at Fierce Festival, art imitates life. Each performance will shine a light on some of the most pressing cultural issues of today such as politics, sexuality and the ecological crisis. Whether you attend every day or just pop in for one event, you’re guaranteed to leave feeling inspired, having seen something emotive, surprising, joyful and thought-provoking.
