Get involved in our REVEAL Festival 2018

Submissions are now open for off-site work in our annual REVEAL Season, a platform for emerging and established local and regional artists and theatre companies to showcase extraordinary new work.

Our REVEAL Festival aims to bring together a diverse mix of artists and theatre companies, to put on a wide-ranging selection of exciting and engaging performances, experiences and events.

What we're looking for

We are looking for high quality, story-based performance pieces by artists with passion, energy, and enthusiasm for telling stories in new and innovative ways.

You will receive support from the Octagon team to find a suitable performance space in Bolton. In previous years, locations have included the top of the NCP car park, the Belmoral pub, and even the swimming pool at the Holiday Inn!

We will be programming artists and theatre companies through open submission for performance at the Festival.

We want to hear from new talent, as well as experienced artists, and we particularly want to hear from people whose voices are not often heard.

Please note: we will also consider strong submissions with a longer lead-in for the Reveal Festival 2019.

REVEAL Festival dates: 23 April - 5 May 2018

Submissions deadline: 5pm on 1 December 2017  

Interviews will take place for shortlisted artists/theatre companies on 15 December 2017, which can also be by Skype.
