Leeds Playhouse creative festival



Leeds Playhouse celebrates new work, new artists and new partnerships with Furnace Festival 2022, a programme of performances, workshops, conversations and social events from November 7-12.

The festival gives artists starting out a chance to get feedback on their work – and allows audiences to experience new voices and to explore their own creativity.

The festival is a key part of the Playhouse’s continuing Furnace programme, which marks its fifth anniversary this year. Working with hundreds of locally-rooted artists and organisations, this is the theatre’s development engine, generating and creating new work while supporting the local creative community.

Furnace producer Rio Matchett said: "This year we're sharing a panel discussion on Black theatre makers and censorship, a few new shows still in develop-ment, and a variety of workshops aimed at a wide range of creatives.

"Furnace Festival is about celebrating theatre makers and getting audience feedback to inform how we make the shows of tomorrow.

"Come and join us - we'd love your voice to be a part of the conversation." All the events are either free or pay-what-you-can. Find out more here
