SURGE Festival madness takes over Merchant City in an extravaganza of unique and outlandish outdoor performances.

HOMEGROWN

Sat 25 July - Sun 2 August, various times and locations (walkabout)

Developed and supported by Conflux in tandem with professional performers, we're unleashing the latest batch of brand new, brilliantly bizarre street theatre acts from emerging artists for you to catch - or be caught up in! See them roving around Merchant City at various times and dates.


COMMUNITY STREET THEATRE TOUR

SURGE Community Street Theatre project is back! New costumes, new acts, new ways to surprise and startle on the streets of Glasgow. Our ever-popular project lets those new to outdoor performance learn fun new roles before hitting the town with professional performers for a surreal walkabout session.  Workshops take place Wed 29 - Fri 31 July & Sat 2 August at The Briggait. Visit www.conflux.co.uk more more information or contact eileen@conflux.co.uk (0141 559 4928) to book a workshop.
