Make & Do

As we increasingly invite you to shape the Festival and discover our Festival Spirit, we’ll be offering you more and more opportunities to, not just consume the Festival… but also be a part of it. MAKE & DO sees community collaboration and participation. News News News is a topical broadcast… made for adults… by children. The show brings to the stage the city’s current affairs, all seen through the eyes of a ten year old.

In the culmination of a three year project with Stopgap Dance, Frippery brings this acclaimed company together with around thirty local people as they explore identity and celebrate some amazing clothing!  We also hand over the Festival for a day to a group of young people to curate their own programme in Engage!. They challenge the current socio-political climate with words, ideas and debate.
