Summer at Q is our annual celebration of independent makers: a space designed to give collective artists, companies and audiences a chance to take artistic risks in theatre, by providing venue, marketing, ticketing and technical support at accessible rates in a festival framework. Dance, theatre, music, live art, talks, workshops, cabaret, comedy, whatever your preferred art form, we welcome your ideas and submissions. Over the past 6 years, we have supported works from a massive range of artists, both emerging and established, from experimental, through to kitchen sink dramas.
