More info on Slow Sunday

Slow Sunday is a day-long festival of performance showcasing artists working within multiple disciplines including performance art, theatre, visual art, cabaret, dance, drag and participatory performance.

The aim of Slow Sunday is to provide artists from all stages of their career a space to take risks and try something new in front of a friendly and supportive audience. Most of the work presented is in its early stages of development and ranges in duration from six minutes to six hours.

Audiences will be able to come and go as they please for most of the performances but some of the rooms will have a maximum capacity and there will be a one in, one out system in place if they get full.

It is a large programme spanning across one day, we recommend taking your time and making your own individual journey. Part of the joy of this type of event is that you get to curate your experience. You won’t see everything and thats ok.

A full timetable will be published online one week before the event for those of you that are desperate to know these things in advance.

Age limit – Antonio Branco & Riccardo T performance is 18+. All other performances are for all ages (with the shared understanding that the naked body is not by virtue of its presence explicit or gratuitous).


Ticket prices are on sliding scale depending on income – £30/£20/18. Please pay the full price if you can as all ticket money goes directly towards paying the artists and making this event happen. BUY TICKETS
