We're excited to launch a brand new season full of breath-taking live performance, big name acts and fun for all the family. Watch our new trailer and check out a few season highlights below:
US alt-rock legends Mercury Rev headline a stand-out music programme that also features rising star Ry X, MOBO Award winning saxophonist YoLanda Brown, the beautifully melancholic Tindersticks and plenty of folk from The Young’Uns and Teddy Thompson.
A glorious white horse comes galloping out a sea-mist in Into the West and there are prehistoric beasties on the loose in Dinosaur Zoo. There are tonnes of treats for tiny people with Julia Donaldson's
Tiddler and Other Tales from Scamp Theatre and this summer's out-of-this-world Family Day.
There's brand new Bhangra-style musical theatre from Rifco in Laila, a modern retelling of the bittersweet story of star-crossed lovers Laila and Majnu, passed down through verse and song over centuries.
Cinematic set design and mesmeric physicality combine under a wide-open sky with only rickety camper vans for shelter as Warwick Arts Centre joins forces with the International Dance Festival Birmingham for 32 Rue Vandenbranden.
The classical concert series comes to a triumphant conclusion with the Bruckner Orchestra Linz and the Philharmonia Orchestra, featuring a programme of Sibelius and Elgar under the baton of Edward Gardner.
The Mead Gallery presents a free exhibition of light and sculpture in Another Minimalism: Art after California Light and Space. Artists including Larry Bell, Tacita Dean, Olafur Eliasson, Spencer Finch and James Welling use photography, film, glass, mirrors and coloured lights are to alter the viewer’s perception of space and time.
Bill Bailey headlines a comedy programme that also features Adil Ray’s Citizen Khan, a whistle-stop Westeros in Graeme of Thrones, a panel of Grumpy Old Women and stand-up from Sara Pascoe, Ross Noble and Mark Watson.
This season also features a continuation of our new series of Masterclasses, as well as the return of the popular Met Opera and RSC Live Digital Screenings.
