BE FESTIVAL 2017 © Brook DiDonato

BE FESTIVAL is Birmingham’s annual performing arts festival, returning this year between 4–8 July, at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre. Join us for week-long celebration of international culture and creative collaboration that unites audience, artists, makers, musicians, and friends from across the continent.

Each day, you can meet and relax at our festival HUB, cafe and bar, join in with free workshops, artist talks and see exhibitions. Each night, enjoy four 30 minute shows, dine on the REP’s mainstage, and dance into the dawn with the BE Late Stage programme of live music and DJs. Come and experience BE FESTIVAL; the soul of Europe in the heart of Birmingham.

Performances by Paula Rosolen, Anna Aristarkhova and Mamaza are supported by the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Goethe-Institut London. The Goethe-Institut is also delighted to see Stephanie Müller and Klaus Erich Dietl, newcomers on the international stage, selected to join BE FESTIVAL as visual artists in residence.
