Artist applications open for Beverley Puppet Festival 2022

We are accepting applications from international companies as well as UK companies, but we are currently unsure whether Brexit will drastically affect our ability to bring companies from overseas. We are seeking as much advice as possible on the logistics of this and please do still apply if you are an interested international company.

As usual, programmed artists will receive food on performance days, accommodation and a festival pass to enjoy the festival alongside a performance fee.
