Outset - Theatre Festival

outset theatre festival logo

Thursday 4 June 2020, 9.00AM to 07 June 2020

Join us as we mark the end of three years of hard work for some of our Theatre, Film, Television and Interactive Media Students. 

We want to recognise the end of our three years as Theatre undergraduates in TFTI whilst also celebrating our new beginnings.

Through Outset festival, we want to create an online platform for new and emerging artists that allows them to flourish, propelling themselves into the industry as professionals. This is a unique opportunity for us to explore the possibilities of performance beyond a physical auditorium and to provide an engaging virtual space that welcomes in people from all walks of life. This environment will allow festival goers to relax, party and socialize, as well as participate in the many activities that will be taking place.

Taking place over 4 days, this festival includes, monologue performances, postshow discussions, guest speakers and wellbeing sessions, all held virtually. You can choose to sign up for a full day of events with our all day festival ticket or just dip in and out when a topic suits you.
