Immerse yourselves in our world

Natasha Whiting,

We love all things theatrical

We love the entire experience…from the beautiful hush that sweeps over the audience as the lights come down, to the first tense moments as the actor steps onto stage. The interval ice creams and applauding those who have captured your imaginations. We love to be invited into a new world, told the story of it’s people and leave enriched with a new perspective.

The spectacle of the theatre lends itself perfectly to the events industry. Increasingly over the last few years companies like Gingerline, Punchdrunk and Secret Cinema have been inviting their patrons into daring immersive events, launching them on a sensory journey of food, dance or film. It’s a pretty strong concoction – and one that we fully embrace.

In our eyes, this trend for theatrics works at it’s very best when outdoor, at the beating heart of a festival-style event. Festivals are the perfect canvas, providing a compact village for thrill seekers and experience hunters to happen upon the weird and the wonderful. Just like the theatre, when you go to a festival you always end up leaving with more than you came with – and we’re not just talking about a stinking hangover and someone else’s Indian headdress. Feast on a banquet of culinary delights, get up close and personal with your favourite bands and spend the night dancing under the stars. Combine this with a night at the theatre and you’ve got the perfect cultural experience.

At Festival in a Box, we embrace this whole heartedly. It really gets our juices going…and with our strong connections to the theatrical world we love to create secret spaces for intimate gigs and pockets of magic for performance art.

Lift the curtain to reveal a world of theatre created just for you.
